When Mazlin left to pursue mounting Hungry Kids of Hungary commitments, rather than folding, Orr expanded on the momentum already built by rallying around the creative hub (including bands Hanabi, Ellington, Levic and The Ehlers, amongst others) to incorporate the all-singing combination of Anita Goldsworthy on keys and lead vocals, Carl Roosmale-Cocq on bass and programming duties and Mitch Clark on drums.
The current Mapletons incarnation has seen a shift in dynamic, with some earlier tracks having entirely new vocals recorded and new ground explored using the main formula of an Orr/Goldsworthy idea jammed out and built upon until the end product is a complete Mapletons effort of sweetly melodic, harmony-rich sounds.
Having been in existence since only August 2009, the four-piece have already turned heads tumbling their twee blend of technicolour pop-folk around the country in support of Howling Bells and Whitley and having track ‘Gunpowder’ featured on soon-to-be-released indie film Jucy (from the directors of AFI nominated All My Friends Are Leaving Brisbane) in this short time.
With the Brisbane launch of debut EP Origami Army around the corner, a music video for ‘Seaside’ soon due and further interstate forays on the horizon, the current glow blushing the Mapletons’ cheeks a productive pink looks set to form an all-encompassing sweat by the time 2010 plays out.
