Deconstructing Artifice with May Rio – Sounding Out with Izzy: A Grrrl's Two Sound Cents Podcast
For today's episode, I am joined by dream pop songstress and New York underground it-girl May Rio to talk about her upcoming debut album French Bath, emerging from pandemic-induced solitude, and feeling renewed and ready to turn a new leaf. We also discuss her unforgettable experience recording background vocals on The Dare's mega-hit "Girls" and the diversity in underground artistic communities throughout the city. ✨ MORE ABOUT MAY RIO ✨ May Rio is the latest project of pop writer/performer May Sembera, which emerged in 2020 from May experimenting with off-kilter melodies in Ableton while confined to her home studio in New York. Her latest album French Bath is a tapestry of imaginative textures and wry humor about the shallow deceptiveness of glamour and artifice, holding up a mirror to the many different ways we attempt to fill our own voids. ✨ KEEP UP TO DATE WITH MAY RIO ✨ Website: mayrio.cool/ Instagram: instagram.com/mayriosembera/ YouTube: youtube.com/mayrio Bandcamp: mayrio.bandcamp.com/album/french-bath ✨ CONNECT WITH IZZY ✨ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCv6SBgiYCpYbx9BOYNefkIgWebsite: https://agrrrlstwosoundcents.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/agrrrlstwosoundcents/Twitter: https://twitter.com/grrrlsoundcents
