"Des Moines' Retro Pop Scene Will Put You in a Musical Time Machine"

It’s quite dashing, and totally fun. “The scene is a really tight-knit group, and I think MAIDS expands on what, sonically, [is] being produced and performed in Des Moines,” said MAIDS frontman Danny Heggen. A track like “Do This Better” contains the bottom-end groove associated with that generation of music, while still mixing synthesized percussions to give it a good modern upsurge. It’s the perfect juxtaposition you want from electronic music—not so sugary-sweet you get cavities, but also not so watered-down and lo-fi that you’re waiting a whole decade for the hook. MAIDS hits just right. - Noisey (Vice)


A MAIDS live show isn’t something that’s going to punch you in the gut. It’s not aggressive or overbearing. A MAIDS live show is like an addictive trance. The band sends participants into a transfusive and seductive melting pot of pop hooks and an authentic mixture of electronic and experimental instrumentation. It’s the type of live show that gets even the most awkward dude dancin’. The band is catchy and people gravitate toward that notion, but it’s the interaction from duo Mickey Davis and Danny Heggen that keeps the people fixated at the stage.

This is the energy MAIDS brought at this year’s 80/35 festival in Des Moines, Iowa. The band turned a block of complete strangers into a dance party with the best of friends. Under The Gun Review had the chance to sit down with the duo and talk about the band’s future plans, including a new record in the works. - Under the Gun Review


Still working on that hot first release.



Maids is a disco band out of Des Moines, Iowa. They call their music Midwest Disco – four on the floor grooves mixed with a straightforward approach to using a song to tell a story.

After releasing an EP last year, MAIDS is currently working on an EP to be released in early 2016, featuring appearances from members of St. Lucia and The Envy Corps.

It’s simple (trusted) music. You can trust these guys’ taste. People want maids they can trust, right?
