Maara - The Forbidden Plum

  • Serpentine techno to edge you out of Eden.

  • The lead single from ​​Maara's new EP, Potion Activated, doesn't let you take a breath. The track bulldozes forward with synth bleeps that pulse over her breathy vocal refrain—"Want it so badly"—before locking into dark techno. There was a similar darkness to Maara's debut release earlier this year, but this time things feel a little sillier (just have a look at the record description written by the poet Hannah Karpinski). "The Forbidden Plum" is a good refresher in how fun the illicit can be.
