Maro sure made a good first impression on the scene with his debut single “Carsick” now at just over 1M on Spotify. Today he’s back again with “Take it Back”. It has spanish-guitar esque / lofi feeling vibes mixed with happy pop elements.
The vocals are simple but solid. It’s what you want over this type of easy-going bossanova? type production. It really sounds like a sample or well-known song that i just can’t put my finger on. Maybe you know what i’m thinking of? Either way it’s a good sign that it’s similar to something that made an imprint in my mind.
Fast-rising Lebanese artist, Maro was born in poverty-stricken Beirut, it became clear to Maro from a young age his voice could be the ticket to a better life. Consequently, he became the walking definition of a ‘self starter.’ By his early teens, Maro was fluent in 4 languages (French, Arabic, Russian, English) and he can currently sing in 7 languages.
Maro began to see success after uploading covers to his YouTube channel, which grew immensely, seeing 28 million views on YouTube in the last year. Maro moved many times throughout his upbringing amidst war-torn Lebanon. Emerging from his chaotic surroundings was music – a much-needed constant and creative outlet. He began playing piano in 2nd grade and eventually joined a music school and started writing songs. He taught himself guitar from online tutorials, all while devouring every culturally-relevant musical genre: heavy metal and old-school hip hop, 90s grunge to chart-topping pop.
