Maïa Vidal can be an unpredictable whirlwind of musical styles and different cultures, but at 28-years-old and with 3 albums already under belt, she’s proved to be a prolific force to be reckoned with. Since her debut in 2011 that landed her an IMPALA award nomination for her album God Is My Bike, she has taken her eclectic blend of ever-evolving (but always catchy) indie-pop on the road; charming audiences from São Paolo to Tokyo, and from Barcelona to New York, as well as winning over brands such as DKNY, IKEA, and Desigual.

Though her 5-year career has taken her around the world and her sound has undergone some unexpected metamorphoses, ...

Maïa Vidal's new single & video: "Bones", a voracious love song...


... verging on the cannibalistic: "Skin so soft I could tear it off / to reveal your platelets..."


Bones, Maïa Vidal's new music video and first single from her upcoming album "You're The Waves", due to come out in the Spring of 2015.  

In this first track off her new album, the young American singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist deconstructs falling in love by stripping it of its romance and literature, exploring the visceral curiosity and desire that one feels upon falling for someone. To the point of craving to expose the inside of the human body to air! 

The Bones single heralds the arrival of "You’re the Waves", Maïa Vidal's third album in as many years. Due to come out in March 2015, it was co-produced by the much-buzzed Brooklyn-based Van Rivers (of Fever Ray, Glasser, Matthew Dear and  Blonde Redhead fame).

The video was written and directed by Maïa herself (who has either co-directed or written all her previous music videos, including Follow Me, which was nominated for Best Pop Video at the UK Music Video Awards, opposite Lana del Rey, Rihanna and Justice).

Going back to the lyrics, Maïa sees the song as "a demented sonnet about an impossibly true encounter of two multi-celled organisms kissing in the moonlight". She describes the process as "a voracious appetite to discover everything about the other person, to see deep within, to interact not only on the surface but quite possibly below the muscle tissue as well. That curiosity is insatiable, it calls for something impossible but at the same time deeply human, a desire to know everything about the person we love - I'd like to make a home in your frontal lobe / and lounge all day in your memories - and to be invited into every corner of their body."
