Today, singer/songwriter MALU takes her first steps as a solo artist. She drops Polish, and yes, it’s brilliant. It consists of a mix of pop, soul, and R&B. MALU’s Corsican roots return in the sound as well. The vocals mesh perfectly with the mellow instrumentals. You won’t be able to ignore the bassline. There are thoughtful lyrics in Polish.
MALU comments: ”For as long as I can remember, I have been busy living up to an idea of who I am supposed to be. Through music I become spontaneous. Here, I can flirt with my identity crisis, set boundaries, make fun of my own perfectionistic ego and sing myself to become who I want to be. Polish is a parody of myself and the mentality of perfection in which we are so indoctrinated today. We have become so good at listening to our ideals that we have grown deaf when it comes to ourselves. The whole thing is an illusion though, because when are we ever perfect enough? It’s like chasing a soap bubble that bursts every time you think it is in your hand.”
