Maria Minerva is the new pop model gone strikingly off-road and deep into your subconscious. Having grown up in Tallinn, Estonia and now relocating to New York after spells in London and Lisbon, this 23 year old straddles hi-end academic viral pop modes and delicious bas(s)e cultural modes and has released a hypnotic stream of tracks, remixes and videos via the Not Not Fun and 100% SILK labels.
The images, sounds and shapes she conjures through her recorded and live work is feverish, filtering disco diva dirty talk, Eastern European-pop grooves, UK bass culture and smudged Californian lo-fi dub aesthetics through her own unique sound world. From day dreams to nite flights Maria's bedroom techno-ballads seem to exist in a narcotically adjusted parallel dimension with delay-drenched vocals floating strangely detached above propulsive drum loops, rainbow synth washes and submerged melodies.
