Maryze's "Like Moons" EP is a an Intimate Reflection on Self-Love and Mental Health
The EP is an honest and haunting reflection on intimacy and the impact of mental health in relationships. From sultry, soulful love ballads to battles with anxiety and shame, the songs navigate the fear and bliss of vulnerability, ending on the sexually-empowered self-love anthem Special.
The release follows her empowering new single Men Like You confronting sexism and gender-based abuse in the music industry. CBC/Radio-Canada praised the track, saying: "The lyrics of Men Like You are so powerful, and they can touch a wide audience. This song should be translated into all languages...it hits you hard."
Drawing influences from early 2000s R&B and modern electronic pop, Maryze’s 2018 debut single B.O.Y. climbed Spotify charts, holding a spot on the Viral 50 Canada chart in its first week. In 2017, the young artist won sixth place in TFO’s national talent search for bilingual singer-songwriters with her stand-out French track Dis-Moi, now released for the first time on Like Moons.
A fiery and refreshing voice on the rise, Maryze is set to embark on a North American tour in May following her EP release. With an upcoming feature in American feminist publication Bitch celebrating strong women in music, this promising new artist is poised for a breakout year.
