A whirlwind of Indie Pop, Rnb and Future Bass influences combine with unapologetic, raw lyrics and powerful synths to create the wall of sound that is Maari. Sporting comparisons to artists like; Alessia Cara, Flume, Billie Eilish, and Zedd; the Sydney based Pop Electronic duo blur the lines between music for the heart and music for the dance floor. With a mixture of delicate and dirty synths, roaring bass sounds and spitfire vocal performances, Maari deliver tracks that are shoutable and ‘crump-able.’
Officially formed in early 2017, the duo saw the release of their first single ‘Shades of Jealousy’ which combined their love of Rnb, Soul and Electronic Music and put them on the map as a duo unafraid to push the boundaries of Pop.
Within the last year, Maari have received international radio play and attention from blogs such as Pilerats, Auspop, and Wonky Sensitive. Their Music Video for their latest single ‘Desire’ was featured at Sydney Fringe Festival’s Clipped.Tv event, Parramatta Lanes Festival and on MTV’s program ‘MTV Upload’ with over 85K views on FaceBook.
2019 looks to be a big year for the Indie Pop duo. They released their latest single ‘Desire’ in August; a party anthem of fierce sexuality with instinctually groovy verses and thumping choruses. As well as spending days in the studio chipping away at a body of work, the pair have recently supported acts such as North East Party House, Wafia, E^st and Morgan Bain with their energetic yet raw live show.
‘With a beguiling blend of indie/electronic/R&B/pop, Sydney duo Maari have been crafting a serious name for themselves since forming last year, and their latest single Desire only adds more kindling to an already fiere flame.’
‘The track is a beautifully polished piece of self-recorded, self-produced home-grown R&B/Pop’
‘We’re clearly dealing with a band with a strong musical vision here’
