Scottish multi-instrumentalist and singer MALKA released a new single titled ‘Don’t Leave Me’ recently via Tantrum Records. The first music since her critically acclaimed album ‘Ratatat’ from last year, ‘Don’t Leave Me’ sees the experimental artist push the boundaries of pop music. 

Formerly the frontwoman of alt-folk collective 6 Day Riot, Tamara Schlesinger’s new solo moniker, MALKA, has seen support from the likes of MTV, Netflix, BBC Radio 1, The Independent, The Line of Best FitDrowned In Sound and Clash Music amongst others. 

Her signature alt-pop style changes the way you think about pop music. ‘Don’t Leave Me’ begins as any other acoustic folk track, but quickly delves deeper into more experimental sounds as her ethereal voice does most of the heavy lifting in the record. A haunting yet uplifting track that demands attention with it’s layered production and synth-textures.

Speaking about the new release MALKA says,
I have started writing my new album and this new single 'Don't Leave Me' marks a change in direction for my music and for the forthcoming record. I recorded this in the studio with Paul Savage (Mogwai, Belle and Sebastian, Delgados) at Chem19 in Glasgow.I have played all the instruments on the song myself again - but this time I have gone back to some of my acoustic roots - perhaps a hint of nostalgia has crept into my music since I have returned home, I have picked up a lot of my old instruments again. The song is about that desperate feeling of loss that you can have when someone leaves you, whether through death or from them moving on from your relationship.
