Maria – Getaway [Debut Single]

May 23, 2009 at 10:14 am (Maria) (, )


Maria’s debut single, entitled Getaway, was released on 05.20.09.

Getaway is a simple midtempo tune with some rock flares. The song begins off quickly with Maria singing very quickly and there is some slight distortion on her vocals. It almost sounds like she’s attempting to do a little rap sequence because of the whole energy. Her vocals could be better here but the music does a ncie job of catching the listener’s attention. Then the distortion leaves and she goes for it with some vocalizations, which honestly do not sound too good. The song continues with a slight rock sound which is nice but the biggest problem is her vocals, which sound nasal at points and a little too screechy. This really comes out on the chorus when she sings “getaway” and “get a life.” It just sounds weird and is kind of off-putting.

Following in the same vein is the B-side, Someday Star. It doesn’t quite take on the same slight rock feeling and the instrumentation is centered more around the guitar. Unfortunately, the vocals are still a problem and sound a little too nasal for the song so it just ends up sounding like a watered down version of the A-side.

Single Ranking: C

The debut single is supposed to wow the audience so that the singer can start building up a fanbase. This single definitely did not accomplish that goal. Both Getaway and Somebody Star face the same problem of having Maria having off vocals. Hopefully she can work on that and her next single will be better.
