Producing mid-tempo tunes that tell tales of love, loss and longing, The New Pharaohs formed in London, where frontwoman Maya Marie’s family sought safety after fleeing war in their native Lebanon. Now splitting her time between Beirut and London, Marie has received critical acclaim with her band’s debut single “Empire”, which mined childhood memories of her journey to Europe as a refugee. Here, the chanteuse appears like a flickering apparition in a video for the band’s latest track “This Changes Everything”.
