Maria BC Releases New Song ‘Still’

    Maria BC has shared ‘Still’, the latest single from their forthcoming album Spike Field. It follows the recently unveiled dual singles ‘Amber’ and ‘Watcher’. Listen below.

    “I wrote the piano part for this track when I was 16 and never forgot it,” Maria BC said of ‘Still’ in a statement. “The original song I wrote then was awful, but in the years since, I’ve wanted to resuscitate the piano riff for something, to write a new melody on top of it. I thought it might be healing in some way, since I struggle to feel compassion for my past self/selves and in fact often find myself wishing I could mindwipe anybody who ever knew me – a clean slate! Would if I could, but I can’t. So, how to move on? A lot of trial and error, then I found the melody for ‘Still’ and these lyrics came out that seemed to describe the process of writing the music, these lyrics addressed to my childhood self, like, “I haven’t forgotten you. You’re still with me.”

    Spike Field, the follow-up to last year’s Hyaline, is due out October 20 via Sacred Bones. Check out our Artist Spotlight interview with Maria BC.
