Maraschino – True Lover

MARASCHINO

L.A.'s Piper Kaplan -- formerly of the great Pearl Harbour / Puro Instinct -- shares the infectious first single from her long-awaited new solo project Maraschino. Produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, Amen Dunes, et al.), "True Lover" is a bright and glittery synth-pop banger / break-up anthem that feels like an effervescent rush of '80s nostalgia, and has us very psyched to hear more from Pipes' new project. Listen below, and help support Maraschino's first-ever North American tour opening for Drugdealer here.
