MAYA LUCIA - miss girl world

Angsty lyrics, powerful vocals and jangly guitar melodies dominate the new release from NYC’s MAYA LUCIA. Sprawling across genres ranging from garage to pop to indie to punk, the singer-songwriter’s rich pool of influences and refusal to be pigeon-holed shines particularly bright on ‘miss girl world’. She is able to pen lyrics that cut deep without the need for flowery poetics – “How am I numb, yet feel so severely” is just one instance where ‘numb or something’ - rightly selected as a single release - is brimming with raw emotion. Closing the album is sweet, acoustic crooner ‘tobias’ - quite a contrast to the heavier sound of the rest of the EP, yet a perfect display of MAYA LUCIA’s dexterity as a songwriter. LT
