Single Review – Maximo Park – What Equals Love?

With their upcoming sixth studio album Risk To Exist on its way for an April 21st release, the Newcastle based group have released their third outright single with ‘What Equals Love?’. With the tracks released so far being rather pointed in tone lyrically (which is more than welcome) this track seems to echo Paul Smith’s ability to portray difficulties in human relations with such musicality and sing-a-long quality. It is a nice shift in tone and variety for the album and though using the same tools, this track has many Pop qualities with infectious rhythms, melodies and harmonies. They are a band that have been sending out solid pieces of music, but this is stronger track that will serve their album and their gigs well.
