The Marías share a new video + embark on US & EU tour

April 19, 2019

In the midst of their North American tour, The Marías return to share a new video. The mesmerizing visual for “ABQ,” co-directed by lead vocalist María and Ian Lipton, arrives off of the band’s 2018 EP Superclean Volume II and was premiered with two special showings at LA’s Los Feliz Theatre on Monday night. The video marks their fourth collaboration with director and award-winning cinematographer Ian Lipton and uses distinct lighting and color to express the taxing feelings of anxiety that the song is based around. 

“ABQ” was originally written and recorded in the van on the band’s first tour, and the visual captures Marías anxieties at the time as an artist and a person, traveling as the only woman amongst a group of six men.  “I remember recording vocals and having to go underneath a blanket so that no one could hear or see me,” María says.  The visual acts as a visual representation of María’s headspace at the time where shadowed manifestations of doubts and anxieties follow her in a cyclical pattern. 

The Marías are about to embark on a new run of shows across the US and Europe including performances at Dot to Dot Festival in May and Outside Lands in August.  Watch “ABQ” above and find details on their full tour routing below.
