about

Maria Rose & The Swiss Kicks are an intense sultry pop trio from Flint, Michigan. Bold and vivacious.. Impassioned, gritty and unexpected.. like whiskey in your bubble bath, lightning striking a rose bush, fireworks at the opera.
Their sound compares to that of Florence + The Machine, Fiona Apple and Muse.
Armed with powerful vocals, galvanizing percussion, and mischevious synths their sultry live performances have been winning over fans and generating a buzz since the release of their debut album, "New Direction", December 2011.

Track Name: Velvet Cabaret
Ella's in the back, trying to relax
counting out her stack of sweaty bills
she's got one more curtain call
one more sassy line
it's almost quittin' time but not until

one more dance just one more dance
one more chardonnay, oh baby
one more dance just one more dance
and she's gonna leave the Velvet Cabaret

Oh la la la la la
She wants to open up a French Cafe

Her mother was a singer, Ella was a dancer
they both worked at the theatre to pay the bills
she left for good at 16, cause mamma couldn't get clean
moved into the city it was such a thrill they called her
"Elle Encore" cause every night she packed that house and had em' beggin for more and after
twenty years on tour she wants to settle at her own cafe

She says I'll open on the corner of Cranberry Street
I'll have paintings on the ceiling and comfortable seats
I'll serve the best biscotti and cafe au latte
and the purple sign will say "Welcome to Ella's cafe"
Track Name: Pineapple Wine
You've got a strawberry kiss
that melts upon my lips
you've got that summer soul dipped in gold
oh you're love is priceless

my honey suckle, my honeysuckle skin
loves your cinnamon
come on and play me, come on and play me baby
let your sunshine in

darling, take your time and
kiss me tenderly, in the moonlight
come and take a drink with me
feels so fine
cause our love goes down easy

like pineapple wine
pinapple wine

Let's watch the summer sky
slowly dance on by
let's take a day and lay back on this hillside
just you and I

my jelly jelly, my jelly jelly bean
loves your sweet ice cream
come on and treat me, come on and treat me baby
I'll be your candy queen

Oh you're tastin' taste so fine oh yeah you
make me make me lose my mind oh yeah you're
coming straight from, fresh off the vine
oh yeah you're tasting tasting so damn fine
like pineapple wine
Track Name: Siren Song
you run such a tight ship
got everything under control
and it's been smooth sailing so far
but you know any moment she might
call out for you with her

siren song
you can't resist for long
oooo oooo crash into me
oooo oooo crash into me

my love my love my love
I can't let you go
no

Well I've been waiting on the shore
looking to the horizon
my heart is sinking to the ocean floor
cause I know she got you she
got you again with her


all alone now in the darkness
now she's got you in sight
such a different man on the land
yes the ocean brings you to live
anticipation waves are breaking
I turn my back to the sea
now she's got you
now you're sinking
but you call out for me
Track Name: Angel Face
painted promises on your golden lips
I believe the all
oh you feel so warm in between my hips
feels so good to fall

Angel face you're such a clever one
you use your angel face to hide your devil tongue
why don't you

take me take me take me away oh
take me take me take me away
take me away

Lie upon me block out the light
lie to me say you're mine
when we see the sun break apart the night
let's turn down all the blinds

bright distraction
blinding passion
make me forget my lost lover
swallow me whole
I need to let him go
and your kiss will erase him from my lips
Track Name: Gypsy of NYC
She prowls through the streets like a hungry alley cat
with a vintage guitar and a flower in her hat she's
Gypsy of New york city

Love is her religion and freedom is her reason
she has four coats so she can blend in with the seasons she's
Gypsy of New york city
oh she's beautiful but she ain't pretty


She sings lalalalal let yourself go
let your hair down let yourself go
life is beautiful

She likes to serenade the crowds as they shove into the trains
and find broken umbrellas on the streets after it rains oh
gypsy of new york city

and when you're running late for work she might ask you to dance
and if you're sitting on the fence
she makes you want to take a chance oh
gypsy of new york city
oh she's beautiful but she ain't pretty

She hasn't a care in the world
brushes her hair with the wind
she sings smooth as a pearl
and laughs louder than a thousand women
her eyes are glowing with life
from the fire in her soul
you hear her sing through the night
she makes you want to let go
Track Name: Wildcard
Enchanting laughing ruby lips are my disguise
confident magnetic hips are my disguise
I only deal the parts of me that I want you to see
the rest is in the deck the ace is hidden up my sleeve

I choose my suit and I play the part
I keep you chasing my my my wildcard I
choose my suit and I play the part
I keep you chasing my my my wildcard

I keep my fears and feelings to myself
and hide my darker side up on that crowded shelf
from afar you see a queen dressed in majestic gowns
a closer look would show the badly rusted broken crown

Keep on chasing
keep on chasing
keep on chasing
my my my wildcard

keep on chasing
keep on chasing
keep on chasing
my my my wildcard
