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.
