Less is more. It’s an old adage that has become a cliche, but in today’s home studios where you can conjure up any sound with a push of a button, following the Golden Rule is easier said than done. The Marias is a tight, indie-pop band out of Los Angeles. They are known for performing songs in both English and Spanish. Cinema is the group’s first full-length album and is already propelling the quartet towards its inexorable destination: pop stardom. In Hush, the album’s first single, the arrangements are tight and tasty – like the distorted electric guitar and retro analog synths that pepper the track – but it is the infectious beat and smooth vocals that keep us hitting the repeat button.
