Listening Post

That’s now three great songs from Malihini – this one’s like Bob Dylan fronting LCD Soundsystem

There's a debut EP coming soon from the duo, too

Our first introductions to Malihini came in November 2016 with their track ‘Waiting’.

They’re the Rome duo comprised of Federica Caiozzo and Giampaolo Speziale, who last year relocated to London.

‘Waiting’ was followed-up by ‘Miss’, and now they’re sharing a new track, ‘Drums Rock And Roll’, along with some news. Their four-track debut EP is finished. It’s called ‘Lose Everything’ and will be coming out on Memphis Industries on 29 September.

“‘Drums Rock And Roll’ is four minutes of free play about youth, fun, addiction, lack of manners,” comments Giampaolo on this new song. “Our producer, Richard Formby, really brought his synths to the fore on this one, while Federica and I, sung some of the sounds we sometimes sing to each other.”

Malihini, by the way, means “newcomers” in Hawaiian.

The band will play their debut headline show at The Waiting Room, London on 2 October.
