Maria Lane

With the release of "merry go round(carousel)", Maria Lane takes a fresh approach to an emotionally driven dream-pop style. Laced with addictive melodies, lush undertones, and plenty of character, the record boasts the aesthetic of cinematic pop anthems. 

 

"Merry go round (carousel) is about being trapped in a cycle of endless arguments with a partner, feeling like you’re just going around in circles. I wrote it during a particularly tough time and wasn’t sure if it would ever see the light of day due to my lack of confidence in it. However, when I brought it to my producer Justin, he immediately saw its potential and transformed it into a dynamic indie rock track. The swirling guitar riffs, and pulsating rhythm perfectly capture the dizzying emotions of the song, making it one of my proudest creations,” explains Maria of her single. 

Maria Lane has had music as her safe space since she was just a young child as she recalls sitting in front of a piano making up songs and putting on pretend concerts for herself.

As she got older, music became more and more a part of who she was. It became a way for her to settle her emotions and she learned to use to emotions to tell a story. 

It wasn't long before Maria started writing songs and sharing them on Soundcloud. The feeling of taking something cathartic, that meant so much to her, and releasing it into the world felt liberating. 

Releasing her first single "strangers again" was a pivotal moment for her as an artist and she hasn't stopped since.

Releasing 7 singles and 2 EP's since then, Maria has found her footing with songwriting, recording, and being able to express herself through her music. 

"Since 2021, I've discovered so much about myself as a singer/songwriter and artist. My confidence in both my writing and vocal abilities has grown significantly. I’m now more willing to take risks and less concerned with external opinions. I've started writing heavier, more narrative-driven songs. Early on, I struggled to finish songs, but now, having written over a hundred, the process feels much smoother thanks to consistent practice. My sound has also evolved, showcasing my vocal versatility. Performing live for the first-time last year and being featured on The Fader were major milestones. These experiences reinforced that I’m on the right path and that my music resonates with people," says Maria of how she has evolved as an artist.

"merry go round(carousel)" serves as a testament to where she is at with her sound right now and the single will be part of an upcoming 10-track album release.
