MAITA release single + video "Loneliness"

MAITA will release their new album I Just Want To Be Wild For You on February 18. The new collection finds songwriter Maria Maita-Keppeler digging into that crippling oxymoron of modern communication -- constant bombardment paired with utter disconnection. This thread is never more apparent than in album opener “Loneliness” which premiered with Under The Radar earlier this week. The song reflects on the isolation Maita-Keppeler found as a Japanese-American in Japan – and the strength that loneliness can create. “The two months I spent studying in Kyoto were the loneliest of my life,” she says. “I lived by myself. I didn’t have any friends. People assumed I couldn’t speak the language. But I miss that rapport that I had with my loneliness, with myself, that intensity that exists when you're alone.”
