The Marías : “Care For You”
“smoldering tension…chilled by a luxe, funk groove” – Rolling Stone
“The Marías velvety vocals make for glorious, body-melting moments” – The Fader
“a flurry of magnetizing tracks with redolent lyrics” – Vogue
“they blend pieces of jazz, psychedelic, soul and pop to set a sensational mood” – Highsnobiety Today,
The Marías return with a new song and video. “Care For You” delivers The Marías patented blend of jazz, lounge and psychedelic grooves that expand the band’s sonic palette with a hypnotic saxophone solo.
The video, filmed in Mexico is shot to transport viewers to a rainforest, María notes,
“From the beginning, Mexico has shown us so much love. Undeniably, we wouldn’t be where we are now without the fans from Mexico.” María shares about the meaning of the song, “This song reminds me of being back home in Puerto Rico with my family. They live in the mountains of Puerto Rico, where their houses are basically in the middle of the rainforest. When I think of it, I can already smell the humid air – a mix of ripe mangoes, cilantro from my grandma’s kitchen and the rain falling to quench the thirst of the land. I haven’t been able to see any of my family since Covid hit, and this song instantly transports me there. With the video, we wanted to transport viewers to a rainforest as well, one that reminded me of being in Puerto Rico.”
“Care For You” is The Marías first track since the Spring release of “Jupiter” and the Bethany Vargas-directed “Hold It Together”, that The Fader praised as “cotton candy-textured” and Billboard described as “intimate” and “ethereal”. “Care For You” also follows their celebrated track “I Don’t Know You”.
For the last few months during quarantine the bilingual band have been quietly working at home on new music following their vigorous 2019 touring schedule.
