The Marías make a splash with their new album Submarine.

Submarine represents themes of solitude and exploration for The Marías, delving into the complexities of human emotion and what it means to choose solitude, and the pain and beauty so inextricably interwoven within it.

Lead singer María Zardoya’s mellow vocals oscillate between English and Spanish as the band furthers the jazz heavy genre-bending experimentation found in the Grammy nominated debut Cinema. While Cinema had the color red throughout its packaging, Submarine uses the color blue with an aptly underwater themed cover. Zardoya’s lyrics take the form of a certain melancholy in the aquatic world where the album takes place.

Since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, Cinema, The Marías have earned the reputation behind their impressive upward trajectory, including two Grammy nominations, a Billboard chart-topper and collaborations with some of the biggest names in Latin music, including Bad Bunny and Tainy. In the live show, The Marías are joined by Gabe Steiner on trumpet and Doron Zounes on bass. The detail that has defined their cinematic style off-stage is brought to life during their live performance as the group delivers striking visuals that beautifully compliment their dreamlike songs, creating an indisputably unique and seemingly transportive experience.
