MALMØ album – We Come From The Stars

MALMØ’s debut album ‘We Come From The Stars’ is out on 4th May 2018 via Integrity Records.

Hailing from Aarhus on Denmark’s east coast, 5-piece band MALMØ features the unique voice and song-writing of Maria Malmoe.

Record releases in their homeland and immersive live performances at this year’s Nordklang Festival (Switzerland) and Arctic Sounds Festival (Greenland) have seen Maria likened to Agnes Obel, Eivør and Oh Land – but there’s a unique musical identity and integrity to her work that defies comparison. To Maria Malmoe, it’s all about the art and meeting the listener within it:

“I dream of touching people with my music, reaching their – and my own – inner core. I believe that music can do that, and that there’s a need for art that inspires the good in people. I think we all need that in this world on the edge of self-destruction.”

​UK singles ‘You’ and ‘We Come From The Stars’ garnered wide critical acclaim, with spot plays on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Ulster, Amazing Radio, Shoreditch Radio and numerous regional stations, with Spotify playlisting from the likes of Crack In The Road, Alex Rainbird, Double J, Listen To Discover, TUNE and Big Tune IMR.

MALMØ – We Come From The Stars [Tronhjem Remix]

‘We Come From The Stars (Tronhjem Remix)’ sees the title track from MALMØ’s debut album reworked by renowned Berlin-based sound designer & producer Christian Tronhjem.

Hailing from Aarhus on Denmark’s east coast, 5-piece band MALMØ features the unique voice and song-writing of Maria Malmoe, whose talent has been likened to Agnes Obel, Eivør and Oh Land.

‘We Come From The Stars’ was inspired by a scientific publication claiming that the human body consists partially of stardust.

An early DJ response to the Tronhjem Remix promo describes it as sounding like David Guetta remixing Saint Etienne for a cool beach bar vibe!

The video for the Remix sees MALMØ performing the track live at this year’s Nordklang Festival in Switzerland.

MALMØ’s 2 singles to date have received wide critical acclaim, with spot plays on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Ulster, Amazing Radio, Shoreditch Radio and numerous regional stations, with Spotify playlisting from the likes of Crack In The Road, Alex Rainbird, Double J Music, Listen To Discover, TUNE and Big Tune IMR.

MALMØ – We Come From The Stars

‘We Come From The Stars’ is the new single from Danish 5-piece MALMØ.

We Come From The Stars – Deezer

We Come From The Stars – Soundcloud

Hailing from Aarhus on Denmark’s east coast, 5-piece band MALMØ features the unique voice and song-writing of Maria Malmoe. EP & single releases and immersive live performances across the Nordics have seen Maria likened to Agnes Obel, Eivør and Oh Land.

‘We Come From The Stars’, the title track from the band’s debut album due out on May 4th, was inspired by a scientific publication claiming that the human body consists partially of stardust.  As Maria says:

“We’re nature all the way through – although we often forget it because of all the layers and things we surround ourselves with. It gives me great peace and a sense of purpose to think that we actually consist of stardust: Nitrogen in our brains, chalk in our bones, iron in our veins, and carbon in our souls.”

Described by Get In Her Ears as ​“an exquisite, twinkling slice of alt-pop, showcasing everything there is to love about MALMØ”, watch the video here …

Debut UK single ‘You’ was released in October 2017 to wide critical acclaim, with spot plays on BBC Radio Ulster, Amazing Radio, Shoreditch Radio and numerous regional stations, with Spotify playlisting from the likes of Crack In The Road, Alex Rainbird and Big Tune IMR.

EP & single releases and immersive live performances in their homeland have seen Maria likened to Björk, Eivør, Oh Land and Agnes Obel – but there’s a unique musical identity and integrity to her work that defies comparison. To Maria Malmø, it’s all about the art and meeting the listener within it:

“I dream of touching people with my music, reaching their – and my own – inner core. I believe that music can do that, and that there’s a need for art that inspires the good in people. I think we all need that in this world on the edge of self-destruction.”

Written with a backdrop of the Himalaya mountains on a trip to Northern India, ‘You’ is the first UK single to be taken from MALMØ’s debut album ‘We Come From The Stars’, due for a UK release via Integrity Records in April 2018.

“A beautiful love song” – Bands of Tomorrow

“Less is definitely more here [as] folk-pop and dream-pop cuddle together” – Polar blog

A charming laid-back feel … [and] … beautifully pure vocals”   – Nordic Music Review
