Bio

Lamalo is an electronic music duo formed by Michiya Nagai and Yossi Cascun during their studies at the Sydney Con.

The boys had a stellar 2018 playing festivals all around Australia, getting Triple J play for the first time and cracking 1 million Spotify streams on their big October collaboration "Outside" (with fellow Sydney artists Emme and Georgia Fair).

Lamalo returns in 2019 with long time collaborator Kim Ven and their new track "Real Love". Rumours have it that Lamalo band member Yossi cried a single tear upon hearing Triple J premiere Flint Eastwood's song of the same name.

Actual writeup:

Packaged playfully with Lamalo's distinct soulful, upbeat production, the catchy and curious feature vocals of Kim Ven explore the relationship between love and lust, as well as the difference between telling someone you love them and really meaning it. This song ultimately uncovers whether to protect one’s heart or to fall in love.

This is some real cocktail hour gear. The breezy bass gets you moving before you taste the potency of Kim Ven's vocals.

You've found your stride with this one. Kim's voice and those guitar licks make for a sexy lil bop!
