Watch List: Get Addicted to The Vibe of MAALA
It just... Feels So Right.
Familiarize yourself with MAALA -- New Zealand's musical gem who isn't exactly new to the scene. At 17 years old, the singer/songwriter (known as Evan Sinton at the time) took the stage on New Zealand's Got Talent to deliver his version of The Beatles' Blackbird.
"I think it was beautiful ... you've got a huge recording career ahead of you."
Fast forward and here we are. Slow and steady wins the race, especially in this case. He's rebranded to MAALA and gotten a firm grip on his artistry; people have certainly picked up on his talents. Zane Lowe shouted him out on Beats 1 last year with the worldwide premiere of "In The Air," pinning the single as "a brilliantly produced pop record." His sound has been defined, producing retro-tinged electro pop filled with catchy melodies and uplifting hooks. His tracks are emotionally invested and charged with passion and imagination, which is the sole reason why our attention was immediately caught upon first listen.
Most recently, he's released his debut record, Composure, with great success. His unique soundscapes come together in the form of a 10-track project. Stream wise, the album has snagged millions of plays and brilliant gratification from listeners all over the world, captivating fans with his smooth vocals on singles like "Kind of Love" and "Forget About You."
