Description

Born in the bedroom out of boredom, desperation and loneliness, Maria Minerva is Maria Juur (b.1988) from Tallinn, Estonia, currently based in London, UK.

"Her music is a place where academia and pop culture, tastefulness and excess, dominance and submission, and yes, Hélène Cixous and Britney Spears, all commingle in a hazy, libidinous swirl.” –-Pitchfork

"Hot-button issues both musical and not-- hypnagogic pop, 90s revivalism, feminism-- are baked into Cabaret Cixous, her second album for Los Angeles-based anti-pop label Not Not Fun....Juur, at least, has the right inspirations: 1980s electro and dance-pop, 1990s house. Much of Cabaret sounds like Ariel Pink covering Jennifer Paige's "Crush"-- hooks made to quiver over seasick chords and seasick-er drum machines." --Pitchfork
