Curated by Animal Collective
Grit is something Lisbon-based Maria Reis has in spades, which captured the attention of Animal Collective’s Panda Bear. After the success of Pega Monstro, the punk band created with sister Júlia Reis, Maria Reis’ solo career blossomed too. In May, she released ‘Benefício da Dúvida’ (or ‘Benefit of the Doubt’), her newest EP, through her long-time label Cafetra Records. The project’s title mirrors the artist’s openness to give into risk and to be able to beautifully showcase strength and vulnerability all at once in the music she continues to write.
