The Marías share cinematic “ABQ” video, announce tour

“ABQ” is taking from The Marías‘ amazing EP Superclean, Vol. II out on Superclean.

In the midst of their North American tour, Los Angeles-based band The Marías took some time to share a video for “ABQ”, a track taken from their sophomore EP. For a fourth time, the visuals were co-directed by award-winning director Ian Lipton.

The track “ABQ” was born in the middle of their first tour, a series of concerts where their singer María was the only woman amongst a group of six men. Capturing the anxieties of the situation as an artist and a person, the track was written on the sly. In her own words: “I remember recording vocals and having to go underneath a blanket so that no one could hear or see me.” This blanket actually inspired the outfits of the cinematic video that is somehow reminiscent of a religious ritual or a funeral ceremony.
