Dan Didier and Davey von Bohlen have been playing music together for more than 20 years now. Since founding The Promise Ring in 1995, they have been at the center of some of the most influential recordings in emo and indie pop inspiring such acts as Death Cab For Cutie, Dashboard Confessional and Jimmy Eat World all the way. Through all manner of personal and professional changes Didier and von Bohlen have continued to record and tour with Maritime, the spinoff band they started in 2003 that continues to shape and define the ideals of the genre they are widely credited with establishing.
Magnetic Bodies/Maps Of Bones finds the core lineup of Didier, von Bohlen, bassist Justin Kulg and guitarist Dan Hinz following up the polished hooks of 2010's Human Hearts with something a little more risky, a little weirder, a little more oblique in its sentiment but nonetheless purposeful. von Bohlen's words, especially, are back to their old impressionism, with pathos one minute and unbridled joy the next. With their fifth album Magnetic Bodies/Maps Of Bones, Maritime sounds younger than its years, and yet in full possession of its own hard-won wisdom and experience. It feels like a band with nothing to prove, but that's going to prove it anyway.
