Maybeshewill are an instrumental band from Leicester, United Kingdom whose music is characterised by the use of programmed and sampled electronic elements alongside guitars, bass and drums. The band have described their sound as "instrumental rock with electronics" while Drowned in Sound described them as sounding "like Mogwai would if the latter had ever found love in an arthouse cinema. And then were beaten around the head with a keyboard". Comparisons have also been made with Sigur Rós, and 65daysofstatic were often mentioned by reviewers as a likely influence on their earlier work. Their tracks often include samples of film or other dialogue; "Not for Want of Trying" contains a sample from Network, while Sing the Word Hope in Four Part Harmony includes samples of broadcaster Edward R. Murrow, and excerpts from Young Winston.

Maybeshewill’s fourth studio album 'Fair Youth' was released on 25 August 2014 through Superball Music (…Trail of Dead, 65daysofstatic, Oceansize). It’s an overwhelmingly positive record, with the band creating a musical solution to dealing with real world problems and difficulties. It’s themes are nostalgia, dreaming, oneirism, and the connections, disconnection and constant feeling of motion that comes with spending so many months of the year on tour.

It’s been shaped largely by influences from outside of the world they exist in - Shoegaze, Electronica, Hip Hop, Chamber Pop and countless other threads coming together. Importantly It’s the band reimagined as a larger ensemble – a hundred year old grand piano, string and brass sections, an enormous old drum kit, glockenspiels, vibraphones and a sea of guitars – while still remaining a cohesive whole.
