"Playfulness comes to define the 50s dop-wop of Maryann’s “Hips, Lips & Eyes”. From the horns to the jaunty rhythms, the whole thing taps into a party atmosphere. Rollicking forward with a tremendous unhinged spirit it feels absolutely maddening in the best way possible." skopemag.com
"Passion pours out of Maryann’s heartfelt ode of “Transparent World”. A style reminiscent of the best of early 90s alt-pop, the piece utilizes a clear-eyed take on the world. Galloping forward with incredible intensity, everything about the piece works wonders." skopemag.com
