You've probably heard this track if you've been anywhere within the vicinity of a radio within the past 3 months. A fortnight ago, it dropped on iTunes. At time of writing, there were over 60,000 listens on Soundcloud.
This is Maala, Sony Music's latest Lorde (= anonymous til ridiculously famous) effort. We don't officially have a name, nor clear image of the 20 year old with a voice of gold. We do officially know that his day job includes factory work, and that he runs in Auckland circles. Our Sony contact has pushed to keep tightlipped on the whole shebang, insisting that, "His music speaks for itself at the moment." All the public so far have to judge by is a wavy distorted chiaroscuro single cover, and the dreamscape track 'Touch'.
We've been lucky enough to have an insider divulge that there are new tunes on the way, and that 'Touch' is just the tip of the artistic iceberg. We're holding out for a gig.
