Maximova is a performing artist, producer, and composer, who left Moscow for Ghent, Belgium at an early age. She's studied music for "as long as she can remember," but it was only after moving to Berlin in 2014 that she focused her energy on writing and releasing music. Earlier this year, she self-released her first EP, Mirror Me, on digital formats, followed by the synth-wave EP New World Being, made in collaboration with her band project, Sönder.
We're told that music is her way of expressing the discomfort of our society. Both sonically and conceptually, contrast is a primary theme to Maximova’s music; she aims to "strike a balance between light and dark, optimism and pessimism, human and machine, revolution and peace." Her sound often layers dreamy vocals and obscure spoken word upon a backdrop of synthetic and acoustic sounds, "painting vivid memoirs of her childhood in Moscow," the label explains.
Computerlove is out on November 19 on Berlin electronic label VOITAX.
