Channeling uncooked yet hazy disco energy with conceptual post-punk leanings, the Estonian-born Maria Minerva (created Maria Juur) became a member of the choice rates of celebrated and critically acclaimed underground feminine electronic artists through the latter portion of 2000s. Created in Tallinn in 1988, Minerva explained her music as “21st hundred years folk music” but her special sound drew commonalities towards the reverb-laden hypnagogic pop produced by Laurel Halo, LA Vampires, and Julia Holter. After learning Art History in the Estonian Academy of Arts and ditching her day time job like a music and artwork critic, Minerva relocated to London in ’09 2009, where she went to Goldsmiths to comprehensive an M.A. in aural and visible cultures, aswell as pursuing the purpose of becoming a documenting artist. It had been around this period that she was an intern on the music newspaper The Wire. After assimilating her artwork history into her lo-fi digital sound, she discovered a spiritual house on Amanda Brown’s Not really Not really Fun label and in 2011 released Cabaret Cixous (called following the famed French article writer and thinker Hélène Cixous), the cassette-only Tallinn at Dawn, and two 12″s — the Noble Savage EP and Sacred & Profane Like — in the NNF offshoot label 100% Silk. The next year saw the discharge of a cooperation with LA Vampires, The Integration, and another single full-length, Will Happiness Discover Me? After shifting to Brooklyn, she came back in 2014 with Histrionic, among her most guaranteed and focused pieces of songs.
