Who Are Maple St.?
It’s not unusual for musicians to write about their own relationships, however coming across a couple willing to write about their love story together isn’t as common.
Alyssa Wilkens & Jillian Allen are the queer couple behind new LA-based indie-pop duo Maple St. Upcoming release ‘The View’ and debut single ‘Holes In My Shoes’ both sound as though they’ve been plucked from a coming-of-age film.
After meeting and falling in love at sixteen, they began co-creating music in their bedrooms (just like in the movies!) Now in their early 20’s, after years of experimenting with their style and allowing their music to mature, their work is here for all to enjoy.
‘The View’: Behind The Song
Maple St.’s ‘The View’ is a truly unique song. Its entire message aims to define their own modern-day love story. Focusing on the particular lyrics “I stayed for the conversation even though I came for the view.”, it’s easy to imagine the sheer adoration the pair have for each other.
