Finding themselves beyond the borders of any existing genre, Molino decided to create their own. They call it dystopop: a mix of the absurd and the morose, of dark ballads and upbeat improvisation, and of brass and electronic instrumentation. Based in Amsterdam but with members hailing from Iceland, New Zealand, Germany and the Netherlands, in the last five years Molino have developed a strong reputation for their live performances. Having last year released the first two EPs, Sinner and Silo, Molino are now poised to release the follow-up, Balcón. Out August 16, Balcón is the last of three new EPs that are to be unveiled before the eventual release of a new full-length album later in 2019.
“Molino is a total musical surprise that will knock you off your feet.” –Pinguin Radio
