About Maruja

Artists in the truest sense of the word, Maruja’s ferocious combination of punk, harsh noise, and transcendent cosmic jazz is fast marking them out as one of the most exciting new acts in the country. The years spent relentlessly honing their craft are paying off in style, driven not just by passion but rather an all-consuming
need to create and perform with a visceral intensity, they are both electrifying and terrifying.

Their breathtaking live show has seen the band selling out Supersonic in Paris, The Temple in Athens, Camden’s Underworld and an entire UK tour.

Maruja’s debut EP ‘Knocknarea’ ended last year as the No.1 rated EP on RateYourMusic, whilst Anthony Fantano included the release in his 2023 Top 3 EPs.

Recent EP ‘Connla’s Well’ is a 5 track collection and the definition of a body of work. Lead single ‘Invisible Man’ garnered support from 6 music, with both a playlist and Maida Vale session. The Limited Edition EP of 500 copies sold out in under 24 hours. It is also currently the No.1 rated EP on Rate Your Music this year.

“killer from front to back and I can’t wait for these guys to get into album mode….when these guys eventually go into full record mode, it’s going to be incredible” – Anthony Fantano
