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.
“Bringing fragility and rawness into beautiful harmony” – Lo-Fi
“Bask in the glorious warmth that sits somewhere between First Aid Kit, Laura Marling and the impish Stina Nordenstam” – Listen With Monger
“Maria’s vocals are pure, celestial, with a hint of innocent bliss” – Cougar Microbes
“Unassuming songs that bring joy on an intrinsic level” – When The Horn Blows
“Celestial” – Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music
