MARIA MINERVA LIVE@BIOS // ATHENS

Maria Minerva live & after party show (Not Not Fun Records/ ΕΕ) Opening & closing set: NO! Saturday 1st October 2011 Free entranceDoors open: 23.00

On Saturday 1st October BIOS and NO! welcome Esthonian Maria Minerva based in London. Maria Minerva with her hypnagogic pop and the latest circulation of Cabaret Sixous, will be in Athens for one live performance and a exclusive after party at the basement of Bios with vynils and Sandra (ΝΟ!) sharing the microphone with her in this bedroom disco party.

Maria Minerva is Μaria Juur from Esthonia. As a student she wrote reviews for music and art, while at the same time studying Art History. On the 3rd year of her studies she started making music and the first samples was something in between lo-fi and pop. Her first music scheme was called MariaUNDMaria was a duet with her friend Maria Arusoo.

On 2009 she moved to London in order to do her practice in Wire magazine and also continue her studies in Goldsmiths University. London inspired her to continue making music in her room. On 2011 she signed with the hip label Not Not Fun from Los Angeles and the news travelled fast throughout the underground society of the net. A series of publications, tributes and interviews created a buzz around her name. Guardian, Dazed & Confused, WIRE, french Vogue amongst others, praised her music and aesthetics, ranking her right there in the list with the most fresh and interesting things of the last few months.  Her depute entitled Tallinn At Dawn was released on tape. Following right after was the 12inch Νοble Savage from the subsidiary 100% silk. The highly anticipated Cabaret Sixous album was released on August in vinyl and cd.

The sound of Maria Minerva reminds you of disco from another era, vocals full of echo and delay fill the space atmospherically.The obscure sound fits perfectly with her image. She herself describes her music as avant pop. The girl of the day, Μaria Minerva, will be at bios for one live performance and one after party with ΝΟ!, as part of her European tour.
