Band on the Wall Recordings is excited to present the first release from The Singles Club; a body of new work for 2021 that celebrates the artistic practice and far-reaching talents of one of its favourite artists and one of the hardest working musicians to grace the Band on the Wall stage.
A rising star in a flourishing Manchester music scene, jazzy-nu-R&B type neo soul artist Mali Hayes steps in a new direction for The Singles Club. Calling on past sounds, she breathes new life into previous work, combining vibrant real-life stories with honesty and soul, resulting in a release that is refreshing, infectious and dynamic.
The record opens with ‘Forgive You’ – a climbing composition that envelopes from delicately nuanced vocal melodies and washed-out synth sweeps, through blossoming harmony and big dynamics, to driving neo soul. A shift that is moving for the listener both in Mali’s impressive vocal journey and through the colourful backdrop of Medikul & Cult Architect’s lush production.
‘Come Closer’ further exhibits Mali’s vocal abilities, intertwining wistful jazz and wandering melodies into a beautiful arrangement that places the listener in intimate surroundings.
