Makon Cyclo: “Maria”

Makon Cyclo shares relationship drama with the magnetic “Maria” in his new single. 

The intro sets the tone for the rest of the song.  The beginning chords make an abrupt stop, leaving the listener hanging and wanting more.  That sense of anticipation and eagerness is also heard through the lyrics and vocals.  The lyrics suggest both hesitation and desire for a relationship with her.  Cyclo’s voice is quiet and almost whisper-like during the verses.  This effect adds a layer of intimacy to the track.  His vocals get louder and more powerful as he goes into the chorus and cries out for “Maria.”

“Maria” is Cyclo’s second single off of his recently released six-song EP entitled Derniers remords,.
