The Marías Tease Upcoming EP With Sultry New Song, ‘Clueless’

10856

“How does it feel every time I let you down?” sings the Marías’ mononymic frontwoman — the only actual María in the band — on “Clueless.” It’s the second single off the L.A. players’ upcoming EP Superclean Vol. II, out September 28th.

Inspired by a spat between the vocalist and her significant other, drummer-producer Josh Conway, the smoldering tension in “Clueless” is chilled by a luxe, funk groove.

“One of the great parts about being in a band as well as a relationship,” Conway tells Rolling Stone, “is that any argument can get quickly dissolved by a new song idea. The word ‘clueless’ came up and within minutes we were no longer upset and had a new song ready to go. Neither of us remember what the argument was about.”

The band teased the track earlier on Twitter with a very special video clip: María recently filmed her father, a dapper mechanic, dancing carefree in a body shop full of antique cars. “My dad is hilarious,” says María. “I wanted to shoot a little video of him dancing to the song. He was so excited to do it. He got dressed to the nines, slicked back his hair and was ready to go.”

The band just kicked off their North American tour with Grammy-winning Mexican rock legends Café Tacvba, which includes five nights at The Independent in San Francisco. They will later be joined by Brooklyn band Triathalon through December 1st.
