We were there when MALU’s debut single, Polish, came out in April earlier this year and became our Cover Art Artist for that week. Now we get to hear her second single with No Hearts and it’s just quality music from the Danish artist. If this production was on a spectrum, The Weeknd’s Earned It would be on the opposite end because of those powerful horns and keys in chords you hear. MALU takes it in a direction that is more poppy in its approach.
MALU’s theme is about not pretending that the current situation of this relationship is more than what it is. You don’t have to put on a façade and just be honest with one another. When you are among yourselves, you can just be yourself and enjoy each other. The video I was a little disheartened because of how short it was.
She just got to the meat of the song and took the video starting there. It looks like she was in the middle of a daydream as one scene she’s laying in bed and in the next, she’s on one of those floating beds out at some big pond with a special, loving friend of hers. You see a lot of shots in that setting of those two together and they look like they are having a great time. And then all of a sudden, she’s back in her room. Heck of a daydream I’d say.
Good afternoon we are almost at the end of another week. We have rising Australian artist Tkay Maidza and her new flowerly (made up word I know) song Cashmere. We have the return or previous Danish Cover Art Artist (April 2 – 9, 2021) MALU and her brand new single No Hearts. Finally we have Pilipino-born, Singaporean-raised singer Marian Carmel bringing us her latest song You Like The Chase. Enjoy this week’s playlist.
There is something special with MALU and her debut song Polish. I believe it’s her tone and confidence as she sings. It’s like a sixth sense where you can feel the words that one person sings rather than going into a studio to just record. I would add that the ambiance of the production helps tenfold. There is a real intimate vibe that hits you in your soul. She’s a real soul singer.
The music video has MALU in 4 spots in particular, on a large stack of mattresses, in a bathtub, in front of a vanity mirror, and on stage with a spotlight. One thing I’ve been intrigued is the ideas and concepts people come up with using minimal resources. And I like what the team was able to come up with. I loved all the parts because of how it was able to focus on MALU. My favorite was the spots where she was on stage. I mean you could see that she was really feeling herself on stage.
Overall, you see and hear that aura of “confident, grown woman”. Mind this is just the debut song. What else is in MALU’s locker of songs? I am genuinely curious as to where her career is going to go because I am really in love with her brand of music.
We are almost at the end of another week. Even though this is coming out in the afternoon, the quality is still the same. Odeal releases his first single, Passenger, since his his EP OVMBR:Roses back in December. Dutch artist Ava Nova comes back again with Paranormal. She was the Cover Art Artist back in May with Superficial. Danish singer MALU drops her debut single Polish. She is giving us something intimate with this track. Enjoy all of the nominees for this week.
