MALKA has unveiled her new single ‘Breakout’ ahead of the release of her forthcoming second album and a headline London show.
She takes the stage at Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston on 7 February.
“The new album has a lot of political references – it is impossible to sit back and see what is happening with the plight of refugees, the dismantling of the NHS and the political changes in the UK and US and not feel affected,” explains MALKA.
“This single is about hope, striving for a better life and believing/dreaming that things might change.”
The first taste of her second album follows the success of her 2015 debut, ‘Marching To Another Beat’, that saw singles like ‘Wonder Why’ become fixtures of the BBC 6Music playlist and gain the support of presenters like Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, and Radio 1’s Huw Stephens.
MALKA first made a name for herself as Tamara Schlesinger, fronting 6 Day Riot, and writing songs that were featured in movies and TV shows like ‘Skins’, ‘Scream 4’, and ‘127 Hours’.
