MOLTENO returns with her smoking new single ‘Our House Is on Fire’, marking her first release of the year. Surrounded by glimmering synths and reverb-soaked percussion, MOLTENO’s celestial voice ushers us into her world of dark and dreamy alt-pop. Her evocative lyricism will take on a new meaning for different listeners, but all will be gripped by the lush melodies of this new release.
Speaking about the single, MOLTENO reveals: “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.”
An accomplished vocalist, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, MOLTENO has attracted support from the likes of BBC Introducing, Spotify Editorial teams, Get Some Magazine, DUMMY and Audiotox. She has taken her atmospheric live performances to Camp Bestival, Fractalight Festival Of Light, Camden Assembly, The Finsbury and The Victoria to name a few, and we can’t wait to hear more from this promising songstress.
