      The Maras

      with The Red Pears, Austin Sexton
      Formed in Los Angeles in late 2016, The Maras are the psychedelic-soul lovechild of LA native, Josh Conway and Puerto Rican-bred, Atlanta-raised Mara. A smooth rendezvous of jazz percussion, hypnotic guitar riffs, smoke-velvet vocals and nostalgic horn solos, theres something undeniably sensual in the groups dreamlike fusion of jazz, psychedelia, funk and lounge. With Mara on lead vocals and Josh on drums, the couple is joined by their closest friends and fellow musicians. On guitar, Jesse Perlman, born and bred of LA, with tones that can melt steel, say his bandmates. On bass, Canadian born and Berklee trained Carter Lee. On keys, Edward James.As they take to the stage, dressed like a dream from another era its clear why fans cheekily compare their sound to having sex in the 70s or like pouring cream into coffee. Watching them, you feel transported, taken over by a sultry tranquility as you drift into a timeless space.They recently released their first EP, titled Superclean Vol. I, in the fall of 2017, and it'll be followed by Superclean Vol. II in early 2018.
