NEW NOISE: MAR The US-born, Latin singer-songwriter talks second single “CALAVERA”. MAR’s odyssey into the creative industry was almost inevitable. Growing up with her Cuban mother and Mexican superstar artist Marco Antonio Solis, the rising talent was cocooned in music and creativity. She first took piano lessons at age six and later focussed on vocals, the spoils of which are plain to see in her debut track “QUEDATÉ” and brand new sophomore single “CALAVERA”, which flexes her muscle for both songwriting and world-class performance.
The Spanish-language slow-burn banger takes cues from the likes Bad Bunny and Luis Fonsi, the latter of which MAR previously opened for. She also took to the stage lately in support of Venezuelan singer Danny Ocean, “It was an incredible experience!” she tells us below. “I also really admire Danny, so it was truly a huge honour for me to be a part of the event!”
Head below to read our chat with MAR all about the journey so far, new track “CALAVERA” and following in her famous dad’s footsteps…
You’ve had a busy year already with the release of your debut single in June, “QUEDATÉ”! What’s been the most exciting part of the journey since its release?
The most exciting part of the release has been my newfound soul tribe, connecting to people from all around the world, and representing my cultures.
Now you’re about to treat us again with your second single “CALAVERA”. Can you unpack the message you wanted to get across with the song?
This song is simply a reminder of how quickly we can all bounce back from an icky situation.
What do you think is the ideal setting to enjoy “CALAVERA” in?
I think the ideal setting is at a party, on a girls’ night out, at the club, in the car, or truly anywhere. My favourite place to listen to it is in the car so that the bass is on point!...
