Soulful Songstress 'Maya' announces debut single 'Sinners'
If MAYA was a sauce, she’d be Frank’s Hot Sauce!
Sinners is a steamy track, full of fierce expression that is articulated perfectly by MAYA’s mature vocals. The band warmly percolates underneath her soulful melody, and strings stab and sweep expressively throughout. It’ll have you wanting to play your devilish self against your angelic self – so seductive!
Excited about the release, MAYA says, “I have been working hard to reach this moment and am ready to release Sinners to the world. The single is a representation of relationship drama, it looks at the two sides of love and desire.”
Directed and produced by Zachary McSweeny (Deja, Maribelle, All The Colours), the accompanying video for Sinners is dark, artistic and seductive.
As MAYA describes, “The music video for Sinners is a thematic display of brooding fierceness, sexual chaos and liberation…I sat with Zach and we decided we wanted to make this video tastefully artistic and experimental. All of the shots were conceptualized to gain insight in to the way I have felt when experiencing hypocrisy in relationships.”
MAYA’s brand of soulful pop is a welcome offering into the Australian music world. The charismatic woman behind the name, Maya Weiss, has been working in the music industry for years, enthusing, “I adore music above all things and have felt this way since I could speak. Growing up playing blues with my father and singing any chance I had… I am more than ready to share my sound and story with anyone ready to listen.”
Do yourselves a favour, get a copy of Sinners on August 5, turn the lights down low and let yourself explore your soul. If you’re lucky enough to live in VIC, make sure you see MAYA perform at one of her shows.
