Her sound has been compared to an underwater Yoko Ono, yet this 22 year old Estonian's biggest problem at the moment is how to get rid of the mouse in her living room.
Maria Juur's, aka Maria Minerva's, music is like hearing a bunch of unknown 70s disco tracks from MTV Estonia through a wall – a wall of static, fuzz, echo, and memory haze. "Her hazy, psychedelic retro sound embraces layered and delayed vocals and warmth and distortion that very much sounds like a cassette tape being played on AM radio" - Her Beats.
Signed to hip LA-based leftfield imprint Not Not Fun, this lo-fi electronic artist plays the Whammy Bar, Auckland on Friday 24th August on the back of her debut album, Cabaret Cixous, last year.
