The Sound

Earlier this afternoon Gorilla vs. Bear premiered this beautiful new track from Maria Minerva. "The Sound" is the first single from her upcoming record on Not Not Fun, titled Will Happiness Find Me? - a somewhat disheartening title and a feeling I'm sure most of us have experienced. The song, however, is not totally reflective of that scared question, but instead it is a head spinning pop jam that starts off with a looped quote from the guru of the Transcendental Meditation movement, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, before exploding into a sparkling haze of synths, snares, kicks and snaps that are filled in with Minerva's seductive vocals. GvB also hipped us to Minerva's current tour schedule, which features an October date at The Pinhook in Durham that I'll certainly be trying to hit up. Stay with us after the jump for the full list of dates.
