MAITA share the fourth single from their upcoming album - You Sure Can Kill a Sunday (Part I)

You Sure Can Kill a Sunday (Part I)” is the latest single from MAITA's upcoming album, I Just Want To Be Wild For You. Written in response to a debate she and her partner had over their dreams, the song is a sonic representation of one side of an argument: erratic, frustrated, and raw. Pairing punk riffs and booming bass with a sweet melodic refrain, the song plays with these two opposing elements, eventually giving way to the searing and open emotion, the uninhibited vocals, the release of anger.

I Just Want To Be Wild For You is out February 18, 2022. It finds Japanese-American 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 picks apart the smallest moments of confusion, uncertainty, and disconnection to achieve incredible emotional heights.
