London-based alt/pop artist and neurologist Lina Maxine, has just revealed the thirst-quenching visuals for latest single, MANGO. The video is split between two different scenarios; one is monochrome with accents of bright yellow, which sees Lina concocting her very own ‘Mango Juice’ whilst dressed up in her finest laboratory couture. Directed by Roisino (Sody, GIRLI and more), Lina has explained of the creative process, “It was incredible to see MANGO come to life in my first music video shot by the incredible Roisino and MadeinEden. It was inspired by science and styled using a combination of film noir and futuristic glam rock references. Shooting the ‘talking head’ scene was one of the most fun and unforgettable moments and intended to give the viewer some food for thought 😉”
Lina made her long-awaited live debut in New York City last year, at The Cutting Room. The rising star then played a sold out show at London’s iconic The Bedford in Balham, just days after.
Growing up, the Russian-American artist participated in a number of singing showcases and national competitions and went on to become a lead singer in a jazz band at the renown Ivy League school, Brown University in the US, where she pursued a degree in neuroscience. Showing no signs of slowing down, Lina went on to earn herself a Master’s degree in neurobiology at the prestigious Oxford University. She did this whilst honing her craft; writing, producing, mixing and playing bass.
Lina Maxine is now producing and collaborating with industry professionals in London’s Tileyard Studios. Lina continues to draw inspiration from science, particularly the brain and its many mysteries. Lina’s passions go further than just music, she is an advocate for mental health, and strives to amplify voices of scientific and medical communities through her platform.
