MOLTENO’s atmospheric and often ethereal soundscapes perfectly compliment her breezy and haunting vocals on her new track ‘Our House Is On Fire’, adding soaring electronic sounds into the mix for a quietly catchy yet understated sound. Reminiscent of a dark and misty landscape, MOLTENO conjures up powerful imagery with her lyricism and seamless delivery.
MOLTENO shares: I started writing ‘Our house is on fire’ in the first UK lockdown. I was lucky enough to stay in the middle of nowhere near where I grew up in Stroud and there was a quietness and a sense of eeriness and social isolation that seeped into the studio at the time. I wanted to explore the way homes can feel inescapable in periods of change like relationship breakdowns or family dysfunction, like the house is slowly burning. When home doesn't feel like home anymore.”
Having already captured the attention of BBC Introducing and Spotify curators, MOLTENO is definitely one to keep on your radar.
