Born in a bedroom out of boredom, Maria Minerva sums up the young female roster making some seriously sexy beats. Hailing from Tallinn, Estonia, her husky vocals atop an array of layered electronic staccatos ooze a simple pleasure of ambient pop and strangely addictive lyrics.

Starting with "I'm so full of fear, always got a feeling the end is near," before finishing with a repetition of "This is the time of your life," Maria perfectly executes the anxious feelings of a 20-something in New York. Gritty, honest and affecting, 'Wake up in NYC' will ensure everyone wakes up to the sound of Maria Minerva.
