Single review: Malka – Alive

Following on from her excellent 2020 album I’m Not Your Soldier and itchy but banging Lau.ra mix of ‘Moving Together’ comes Malka’s new single ‘Alive’.

Self-produced, this purposeful electro-pop gem builds on a gently needling synth arpeggio and Malka’s eerily innocent, whispering vocal.

The chorus’ reverb-tinged bass and analog rave stabs reminisce on the feeling of pulses echoing back off a brick arch – ah, if only.

If nothing else, ‘I don’t wanna feel just fine / I just gotta feel more alive’ seems like a decent mantra for prising yourself out of lockdown hibernation to me. Give it a listen.

‘Alive’ is available to stream now via Tantrum Records
