Pop princess Monique Atreece Zahir, also known as MAZ, has made a name for her self in the Cleveland music scene with her psychedelic soundscapes and whimsical lyricism. With her latest EP Pale Moon slated to release this spring, the emerging artist brings us her scenic new visual and single “Hideaway” .

Pulling inspiration from the ’90s cult classics “Love and a .45” and “The Doom Generation,” MAZ takes us on a journey in the Jean Coneja-directed video, as she and her male counterpart conduct a heist before ditching him and riding off into the California sunset alone, displaying her independence.

“This song is about escaping reality and paving a road of your own set of ideals and not compromising your beliefs. I’m seducing the listener/viewer into shaking off their inhibitions with me and taking a “trip” into a place where we can truly come as we are and be ourselves,” she shared regarding the inspiration behind the new track. “It’s all about girl power and being a dominant female is very prominent in the message I want to convey. We’ve been oppressed for so long and it feels good that we are finally able to step out of the shadow of a man.”

With such an eclectic sound and distinct style, it seems as though this up-and-coming star will be one to keep your eye on as the year progresses. Check out the “Hideaway” video above and stream the Ethereal-produced track here. - Saint Heron (Solange Knowles Publication)

"MAZ sticks ’em up in “Hideaway” (Video)"

Cleveland singer MAZ has been laying relatively low as of late, but for good reason as she prepares for the release up her upcoming EP, Pale Moon. Here, she gives us the second single in the form of a cinematic new video for “Hideaway”, directed by Jean Coneja.

Be on the lookout for Pale Moon. MAZ’s smooth, sensual vocals paired with Ethreal’s very vibey production should make for a stellar listen, and nothing less. - Respect Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Psychedelic songstress ascending from Cleveland, Ohio. MAZ has gone from Soundcloud-mystery woman to one of the mid-west's most captivating talents, combining entrancing soul-textured inflections with hard hitting lyrics and accompanying production. MAZ released her first proper project, "Pale Moon," at the top of 2017 and will be touring the country in promotion of it while recording new music.
