The Resounding Maybes existed in the minds of its members for years, though it would take a global catastrophe to finally urge the project into corporeal form. Equal parts nervous energy, melodic craft and spacey atmospherics, guitarist/vocalist Patrick O'Connor and keyboardist/vocalist Savannah O'Connor write alt-rock songs with a dream-pop flavor.
Faint echoes of 80's forbears such as the Cure, the Pixies and the Jesus and Mary Chain are combined with textures and moods more commonly associated with the dream pop and shoegaze of Lush, Ride, Slowdive and the Pale Saints. The result sounds both of a simpler time but also timeless.
With the addition of guitarist Ed Cho, the band released the Arms of Loss EP in the fall of 2020. It was followed in 2021 by the debut full-length, Sine Qua Non. 2022 brought the Just Say Maybe EP followed by the band's second full- album, Murder Mittens, in the summer of 2023.
The Resounding Maybes strike a balance between melodic heft and breezy tone, as pushed through a wind tunnel for maximum effect.
"Pure dream-pop perfection."
- Postcard Elba
"The riffs and jangle are upfront, and the choruses are addictive. This is a splendid example of how uplifting guitar pop can be in the right hands. Highly recommended!"
-I Don't Hear A Single
"The jangliest, slightly dreamy indie-pop you are ever likely to hear. Imagine old school Eyelids mixed with a subtle Holy Now modernity and you are just about ready to be engulfed by this glorious sound."
-Jangle Pop Hub
"90's shimmering dreamy pop and indie rock vibes! Lovely guitar work and vocals. Charming,"
-We All Want Someone To Shout For
"Huge, melancholy and beautiful... At once familiar, but also fresh and inviting."
- Ivan Pongracic, contributor, The Continental Magazine
"Just Say Maybe washes over in a wave of melancholy... I really like the energy here! Sparkling synth leads, rolling chorused guitars, introspective yet imaginative lyrics. Strong lead with tight harmonies."
-Music on the Moon
"Alternative rock with a fresh feel to it...incredible music! Sine Qua Non is a must-have."
-Chuck Fields, Your Online Coffee Break
"Should be in heavy rotation on MTV, in 1985."

"A wide range of amazing sounds."
- Marika Levine, Mama V
"If you haven't listened to the superb Sine Qua Non by Resounding Maybes, you need to rectify that."
