Latest Release

Mali takes a sharp turn, leaving behind the echoes of lost love to delve into the realities of addiction in her new single ‘Semi Automatic Butane’. The result is a gritty sounding alt pop anthem drawing parallels between the intoxicating grip of compulsive behaviour and the trigger-happy impulses within us all. The track pulsates with a raw, visceral energy intertwining punchy rhythms and a hooky melody to create an edgy, rebellious track.
