Best Covers: The Marías ”…Baby One More Time”

The Marías have released a video for their cover of Britney Spears hit ”…Baby One More Time.”

The Marías—lead singer and backing guitarist María, drummer and producer Josh Conway, lead guitarist Jesse Perlman, and keyboardist Edward James—are a Los Angeles-based psychedelic-soul group who fuse elements of indie, dream-pop, jazz and funk.

María’s soft and sultry vocals coincide with jazzy percussion, delicate synthesizers and hypnotic electric guitar tones in their bedroom pop-esque cover of Spears’ 1999 global hit song, ”…Baby One More Time.”

La cova de Núria Graham
