Bio

Malo Zima are an atmospheric alt-rock group born in an artistically inclined share house stocked with nothing but the bare essentials: two guitars, and a singer/songwriter. From bedroom jams based on a mutual love of Radiohead and Grizzly Bear, the project soon developed into a 5 piece producing a sound rich in thick sonic textures, free-flowing rhythms, and alternately tuned guitars. After locking themselves in a studio for far too long, the quintet have finally produced an expansive debut EP with a penchant for melancholy and all the noise that comes with it.

Produced by upcoming engineer Tristan Hoogland (Cub Sport, Oh Ye Denver Birds, Denmark), the band recorded sporadically over 12 months in bedrooms, large professional studios and an old abandoned post office. Each space came with it’s own unique challenges and forced new creative ideas out of the band, resulting in range of interesting sounds.

rumbling beat, howling guitar & sweet airy vocals. A lovely listen.
