After releasing singles which have received acclaim spanning NPR, Under The Radar, KEXP, FLOOD, BUST, Portland Mercury and more, MAITA's album I Just Want To Be Wild For You is out now. The record finds songwriter Maria Maita-Keppeler digging into that crippling oxymoron of modern communication -- constant bombardment paired with utter disconnection. Along with guitarist/producer Matthew Zeltzer, bassist Nevada Sowle, and multi-instrumentalist Cooper Trail, Maita-Keppeler grasps passionately for a world that too often seems at a gauzy distance, framing complex ideas with visceral songs that sink immediately into the heart.
Pairing vulnerable lyricism with layers of distorted guitars and drums, the final preview track “Where Do You Go?” is shared alongside a dizzying video. A beat-driven, pop-rock anthem that features 90’s inspired guitars, a lilting verse that leads to a catchy, cathartic chorus, the song examines the desperate desire to understand everything there is to know about your romantic partner.
