Tommy Faith – triple j Unearthed review
“Lovely voice from Maya Rose on this moving record. Throwing back to some classic 90s R&B here!”

‘Time’ Music Video Premiere – scenestr
“Heavy with eerie piano loops, delectably sparse electronic production and Maya’s haunting vocals, ‘Time’ pounds with a slow-burn of R&B, soul magic that’s sure to catch your attention. Something akin to a Vera Blue-Billie Eilish love child if you need an audio reference.”

Interview with Forte magazine
“Fusing soulful vocals, ballad-driven piano, pounding R&B beats and lively jazz, ‘Time’ encompasses periods of music from yesteryear, from ‘90’s urban R&B to ‘70’s soul.”

‘See You Again’ Music Video Premiere / BTS & Interview – CLIPPED.TV
“From the very opening shots of this video, hanging champagne flutes and the stylish décor of this cocktail bar, “See You Again” exudes class. However, it’s when Maya Rose makes her first appearance, delivering her words with that trademark sultry restraint, that the tone for the video is truly set.”

Declan Byrne – triple j Unearthed review
“contorting and bending my body to this snake charmer.”

Interview with The Partae
“Your debut single ‘See You Again’ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting for this track? ‘The main influence for the track was an R&B style Ariana Grande track produced by Tommy Brown but also adding in references to 90’s New York R&B and gospel. The inspiration behind the lyrics was about my experience of briefly meeting someone and remembering those instant feelings of excitement and curiosity. The line ‘jealous of the night we had’ was created because I kept thinking back and missed being there.'”
