STAT E M E N T María Robot is an electro-rock band formed in 2013 in México City, their style incorporates elements of industrial rock, post-punk and electronic music. Engaged by the combination of organic, electro-acoustic and programming, their music feeds from digital sounds, textures and sensations. María Robot creates dark, melancholic and eclectic sounds, as a docile voice emerges through the noise of gears and machinery.
The band started late 2013 with the purpose of venting musical concerns. María Robot has performed at some of the most important venues in the city such as El Imperial, Bajo Circuito, Bataclán, Sala Julián Carrillo and Festival Ajusco. They have made interesting collaborations on film projects such as Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Bronson” (audiovisual dislocation along with Gaznate Collective) and “El Método Lanner” at the Guanajuato International Film Festival “GIFF”.

DEBUT ALBUM Their debut album María Robot was released last April (2016), co-produced by Roberto Mendoza (Nortec Panoptica Orchestra), recorded and mixed by Marvin García in Pink Noise and mastered by Andy “Hippy” Baldwin at Metropolis Studios in London, also featuring sound artist Iván Esquinca Yañez and Icelandic cellist Signý Bergsdóttir. The cover art “Ahumados” was created by American artist Miguel Horn, presented on a double cover disc packaging, ingeniously designed by Liza Herrejón (Lincelott). Oneiric songs, hypnotic lyrics, soundscapes and rhythmic sections; an introspection across human lability, the roughness of the machines and the dichotomy of the organic and the synthetic.

PRESS & M ED I A q u o t es “Metamorphosis of chiaroscuro: If androids dream about electric sheep, music always dreamed about María Robot.” – Radio UNAM “Well structured songs, full of strength and many digital textures that become part of a large sound ensemble.” – Revista Marvin “María Robot shows that independent Mexican music is mature and competitive.” – Periódico ESTO “María Robot’s sound manages to fill an atmosphere that evokes an existential void, but everything is not lost at all, as long as the music continues.” – Revista TBN
