Maryann – This Is What The Moon Sounds Like (Album Review)
So my homie Dub shoots me a link for a new album to review (as I do with furious pace (jk I be takin all day)) and open it to find possibly a new star in the making. Now to put it in perspective, I probably wouldn’t have reviewed this album if I wasn’t referred, how the F ever this EP landed on my virtual doorstep, so I jam. I was surprised (maybe a tad embarrassed) how much I liked the project. Not too embarrassed as I was an original Kelis fan waaaay back when Kaleidoscope came out, waaaay before her Milkshake brought boys around and before she was Bossy as a mofo, so I’m open to feminine bravado and braggadocio.
I started listening to the This Is What The Moon Sounds Like EP and I had to take off my hat (old English D of course) and tip it to Maryann, definitely a well SBVCE produced, opposite of milk toast project she put together. She has hella crossover appeal and if done right she has the music production and singing voice to make a major push for a long career in the business.
My advice would be to go with the song So Xtra as her single that song could be a club banger/extravagant video. And it’s a different sound that doesn’t try to over do bass in a bass filled era.
I also LOVE the song Slow Ridin, sounds like a female Travis Scott/Future song, I dig it in a major way. The project is an 18 -29 year old female jam I’m willing to bet. Trust and believe you’ll hear big things from Maryann in the future.
