New Music: Malou Madi

Paris-born starlet Malou Madi is a singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist currently based in Brooklyn.

New single ‘What We Don’t Say’ is taken from Madi’s freshly-released EP of the same name (out now), and treats listeners to a finessed fusion of mellow soul and alternative R&B. Explaining the story behind the track, Madi elaborates:

“I wrote this after a long late night conversation with someone who seemed unable to say what seemed to so evidently emanate from her. It felt as if she was not yet ready to hear the words come out of her mouth. I was questioned by her impossible wall, and I wrote this both wanting to say it’s ok not to say what we’re not ready to say, but also to express my deep commitment to being a safe, judgment-free space for people to say what they truly think or feel. We’re all complicated beings, and I’m always drawn to writing about the cracks, the unsure, the ambiguity of our ever-moving minds.”

Already an accomplished musician, Madi has worked alongside the likes of Kadhja Bonet, Emel Mathlouthi and Emily King.

Fans can look forward to a recorded live rendition of ‘What We Don’t Say’, which will be released soon.
