Maria BC


Hyaline is the debut album from Ohio-born, Oakland, CA-based artist and songwriter, Maria BC. Following last year’s debut EP Devil’s Rain, which received critical praise from Pitchfork, BBC Radio 6 Music, KEXP and more, Maria created Hyaline across their untreated Brooklyn apartment in Summer 2021, like a wandering spirit gaining energy from different spaces. Their classically-trained mezzo-soprano voice soars over raw, etherial guitars; audio samples from Prospect Park – now almost unrecognizable - settle alongside tender, transformative harmonies. Mixing together different sessions, tracks recorded directly into their phone and samples collected over the years, Maria BC likens Hyaline to a “sonic collage.” It’s a project of patience and trusting the process.
