TRACK REVIEW: MALKY “Diamonds”

MALKY

Enjoy a new track “Diamonds” from German-based duo MALKY. The song saunters into your ears slowly, sexily, before we realize it’s a song of sadness: “Don’t you know how much it hurts me?” asks singer and pianist Daniel Stoyanov, who together with producer Michael Vajna makes MALKY. Their name means “little boy” in Bulgaria, where Daniel emigrated from to Germany as a child. Apparently the two are inseparable “brothers in spirit” and share a nostalgic yearning that’s woven in the thread of their music. The 60’s-era blues on the track is bejeweled with modern beats to create a well-rounded songthat allows the boys to strut their stuff. Add them to your playlist that flows from Otis Redding into Twin Shadow.

Listen to “Diamonds” below. Their debut EP, also titled “Diamonds” comes out in the US April 7.
