The Maras Elegant Un Milln Video Is An Ode To The Elegance Of The Dancefloor
Its been a few months since the Los Angeles-based indie pop group The Maras released their debut album Cinema. The two groups have released an equally lavish video for their Spanish-language song Un Milln, which expands on the opulent, glamorous world they created around their album.
The dazzling video, directed by Bethany Vargas, celebrates the euphoria of the dancefloor. Mara Zardoya, the singers lead, sings the song as a sea of moving bodies shake their hips to the rhythmic beat.
Cinema, written and produced entirely by Zardoya and bandmate Josh Conway in their LA apartment, draws inspiration from groundbreaking filmmakers like Pedro Almodvar and Wes Anderson. Zardoya said about the LP: We want people to feel inspired to create anything, whether its music, art, or whatever else theyre drawn to. Hopefully the songs will help them to break away from real life for a while and create some sort of dream world in their heads like the scenes to their own little film, he added.
The Maras Un Milln video is available below, as well as their upcoming tour dates.
