Maria Sweet – “With Time”

maria sweet

Maria Sweet produces a fleeting and cleanly crisp rock sound with some seriously impressive vocals, evident within the first minute of this track. The raspy exhilaration around the 30-second mark impressively transitions to a wonderfully effervescent surf-pop-laden melodic twist that serves as a sensational hook. As such, “With Time” enjoyably swaps between fleeting rock, melodic power-pop, and atmospheric call-and-response surf-pop. It’s a wonderfully infectious hybrid that has resulted in many replays on my end, for this track and others on their Soundcloud.

Formed in 2009, the four-piece is certainly on the rise. Their new EP,¬†Songs from the Sonoran, is an impressive showing headed by “With Time”, but equally impressive in dexterously enjoyable rockers like “Tick” and “March”. Stream it in full below:
