After releasing their collaborative single to critical acclaim, alt singer-songwriter and producer Eyedress and Grammy-nominated band The Marías release the music video for “Separate Ways,” out now via RCA Records.
Directed and animated by PRTND Studios, the claymation visual finds Eyedress and The Marías up against an alien abduction. When Eyedress and The Marías’ lead singer María Zardoya go missing, it’s up to Eyedress’ family to travel to space to rescue them.
After releasing “Separate Ways” last month, the song received praise from Remezcla, Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, Numero Magazine, and more. The first of two joint singles from the duo, Eyedress and The Marías are set to release their next single later this month.
Born in Manila and now residing in Los Angeles, Filipino artist Eyedress has continued to make a name for himself over the past decade, blending a wide array of genres from lo-fi hip-hop to post-punk to ‘80s-influenced goth and more to craft something that is distinctly and wholly his own. He certified himself as an artist to watch when his 2019 single “Jealous” hit viral status, appearing in over one million videos on TikTok and earning an RIAA platinum certification. He followed suit with “Romantic Lover” the following year and “Something About You” in 2021, both of which have also gone platinum. Last year, Eyedress made his Coachella debut and released his latest full-length project FULL TIME LOVER, which featured collaborations from N.E.R.D.’s Chad Hugo, Nosaj Thing, The Drums, and more, including his partner, Elvia. The acclaimed record earned an official remix treatment from Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine, who put his own spin on the album’s track “HOUSE OF CARDS.”
About The Marías
The Marías are the Grammy-nominated psychedelic-soul lovechild of Puerto Rican-bred, Atlanta-raised María Zardoya and Los Angeles native, Josh Conway. The two are joined by their closest friends, Jesse Perlman on guitar and Edward James on keys. Their undeniably intuitive musical chemistry can be heard in the band’s smooth rendezvous of jazz percussion, hypnotic guitar riffs, smoke-velvet vocals and nostalgic horn solos. There’s something undeniably sensual in their dreamlike fusion of jazz, psychedelia, funk and lounge. Since the release of their debut album, Cinema, The Marías have earned the reputation behind their impressive upward trajectory, including two Grammy nominations, a Billboard chart-topper and collaborations with some of the biggest names in Latin music, including Bad Bunny and Tainy.
