Floating Room is the musical project of Portland based multidisciplinary Uchinanchu American artist and DIY veteran Maya Stoner. Their latest EP, Tired and True, was written by Stoner and recorded in the summer of 2019 against a backdrop of intense personal transition.
Lead single “Held Open Door” is a meditation on dimming innocence set to jagged guitar pyrotechnics à la Deerhunter and Television. “Freakshow” is a self-professed “pop hit” concerning Stoner’s perceived pariahdom within Portland’s blindingly white, furtively racist punk scene.
Tired and True is being released independently by Stoner digitally and on vinyl. It features contributions from Jon Scheid (Duck. Little Brother, Duck!, Dreamdecay), Aaron Liu (Two Moons), Jared Ridabock (Anne, Wild Guess), and Mo Troper.
