Mali Mali Album Release Tour - The Wine Cellar, Auckland w/ Jocee Tuck

The artist known as Mali Mali makes for inspired, disarming listening. With flowing piano melodies echoing Elliott Smith and delicately constructed layers of texture akin to the post-rock musings of Godspeed You Black Emperor, Mali Mali (real name Ben Tolich) elegantly tows a line between classic pop-songwriting and aural experimentation.

In support of his haunting new album Azimuth (released through iconic Wellington label Home Alone Music) Mali Mali is embarking on a 6 date tour of New Zealand with a 3 piece band. Using Harp, Synths, Guitars, and Piano to create a wall of shimmering texture to his songs.

Fanfickk 'Cotton Candy' Single Release

Set for release on the 6th of July, Fanfickk's newest song "Cotton Candy" sounds like a meet cute between Icona Pop and Grimes. A sunny, dreamy synth pop track, it's a sharp departure from her recent collaboration with Hybrid Rose on the angry and cathartic "Just Press Play", which was selected for RDU's Singles Club in May 2018.

A lyric video for the song "Cotton Candy", heavily featuring cute ceramic ornaments and (real) cats, is also being released on the same day. A 3D animated music video is slated for August.

"Cotton Candy" will be available on July 6 from Bandcamp as well as streaming services such as Spotify and iTunes.
