Potion—the international indie pop sensation that delivers a full, rich concert with pop harmonies, a guitar, a synthesizer, a percussive lemon.
Potion is the San Francisco based creative duo of Annie Maley and Michel Bedoya. They make music, short films, animations and visual design projects. Their music is a true synthesis of elements, blending modern sampling and synthesizer work, surf guitars, layered vocal harmonies, and ultra cool maracas! After years of touring the globe, performing in venues across the US, Canada, South America, and Europe, Potion has been more recently focused on blending their new recordings with multimedia designs, short films, and animations.

“All of the songs have a fresh, upbeat sound, somewhat retro in tone but full of life. Yet Potion aren’t all about flair and sonic fashion; their songs have memorable melodies and heartfelt lyrics that tackle love and loneliness. Their style will catch your attention first, but underneath it lies solid songwriting and genuine emotion.”
“Potion is nothing if not dreamy. The band’s sound, born of boundless optimism and low-budget inventiveness, blends sexy chic with gritty drive. Musically, Potion is hard to categorize and easy to listen to. Professionally, Potion is a part-time flight of fancy and an international sensation. Philosophically, the band is all things to all people–except those too stagnant or stodgy to jump on board.”
“The music is cheery and energetic and perfect for the beginning of summer. It makes me feel like dancing and has singing along even when I don’t know the words.”
“Potion make romping, bruising, sophisticated, fuck-you pop music, and in Annie Maley they have a true star just waiting to be found and made into an international queen of the free world.”
“Hors du temps, entre melodies mielleuses á la guitare et sons synthétiques éthérés, flotte dans un espace spatio-temporel insaisissable, entre feu- et une aventure musicale á venir.”
“Tras la cálida voz de Annie Maley se esconde el candor de Potion, dúo pasado por la espiral del túnel del tiempo, tele transportándose desde los inicios de las cantautoras en Francia hasta la figura de la eclipsante Nico, junto a la Velvet Underground.”
