Fronted by the titular María, the band has only released a few singles but has already garnered a devoted following in Los Angeles. The Marías dreamlike, sultry creaminess pines for era’s long past while also edging towards a certain urgent call for affection in the here and now. Their fusion of jazz, soul, funk, and newly-bred psychedelia shine with a sincerely vintage sheen, it’s a sound that has no qualm with fading to become the backing soundtrack to whatever memory or dream it takes you to–as it’s also the source of the horn, drum beat, riff, or croon that’ll wake you from it eventually.
