Maya Killtron's new single, “Bad Decisions” is a review of some of her best romances and worst choices in the field of love. It’s honest but light, real but unapologetic, and always dancy. This new track was inspired by her influences but is something new and dynamic that can only register as authentic Maya Killtron."
Out on February 3, Bandit Queen is a folk fabled concept album that began with a 19th-century horse thief named Belle Starr. The title track “Bandit Queen” documents the creative transition from concision, which was central to Sarah Beatty's first album Black Gramophone, towards a supersonic mythological expansion that happens on her new album. There are all kinds of mythologies telling people who they are and who they aren’t. With this song, she wanted to invite the dark parts into the storyline and inspire listeners to be their whole, real, bodacious, outlawed selves.
"Bandit Queen really came into existence in the 19th century through the historical account of an exceptional and flawed woman. When I read about Belle Starr, the fabled bank heist mastermind turned horse thief, she grabbed my attention immediately. And from that original inspiration, I began imagining and contemplating all kinds of stories that rarely get told about women, even in the 21st century. Each of the songs on this record tells 'a different story, and as a collection, they become the spine of a whole other adventure."

Sea Yarns - Death of a Giant EP is a modern take on instrumental surf music for places that are not necessarily sunny or sandy. As a fan on old surf music from the early 60's, I wanted to make surf music that is more relevant by todays standards that represent the cold, seasonal, moody, rocky shoreline that I know and grew up next to, rather than the sunny and sandy all the time beaches and surf culture of southern California in the 60's, which I know nothing about.
