Song of the Day: A.M – Malunga

Following on from last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Never Let Go’, which was supported by Record Of The Day, SoulBounce, Reprezent Radio, ASBO Magazine, and Hoxton Radio, among others, and on the back of being hotly tipped by the likes of Toddla T (BBC Radio 1), Roundhouse and Urban Development, fast-rising British singer and songwriter MALUNGA returns with her latest single titled ‘A.M’.

Produced by Peter Hakola (Makola, DeLooze), and taken from her forthcoming EP, which is due for release in 2020, ‘A.M’ is, in MALUNGA’s own words, about “getting to know somebody new but feeling like you’ve met them before. The song also captures the excitement and mystery around dating that we create versus the reality of the situation and who the person really is”.

Recommended if you like the sounds of NAO, Mahalia or Solange, MALUNGA is an exciting talent who captivates a sound that can be best described as experimental and progressive soul-pop, which is underpinned by a relatability, honesty, and authenticity that leaps out in her songwriting.

East London native MALUNGA first burst on the scene as a teenager in 2015, with her debut EP ‘Exhibit A’, which was met with rave reviews from fans and critics alike. She then went on to release ‘Whisper In The Dark’, which caught the ears of Toddla T, who supported the single on BBC Radio 1, before releasing ‘Never Let Go’ last summer.
