SXSW Speaks: The Marías
If you haven’t heard the “The Marías”, do start with “I Don’t Know You” the first cut off their debut EP, SuperClean Vol. 1. Restrained guitar and bass patterns jump in and out of downbeat drums, drowning you with emotion as you hear the complexities and confusions of lead singer Marías love for the band’s drummer, Josh Conway. It sets the tone for The Marias sound, an alternative, Latin rendition of bedroom soul-pop, and their complexion, a band formed around María and Conway’s relationship. In the midst of a stuffed SXSW, Josh and María caught up with GoodMusicAllDay to tell the story of how they met, what their ideal headlining concert would look like, and what’s next for The Marías.
