MALKY are singer Daniel Stoyanov and producer/keyboard-whizz Michael Vajna. The duo got together much in reverse of how most relationships end; collaborating almost telepathically right from the word go. They had no choice but to start a band. At the core of the project, Daniel and Michael set out a clear mantra by focusing on recommenced musical concepts of the past. Passionately studying and carefully dissecting 60s-sounds, MALKY re-construct those elements in new ways. Their first EP "DIAMONDS" is as much set in the past as it measures modern ways of music making. Combining classic Rhythm’n’Blues-song potency with subtle electronic elements and new lyrical ideals, MALKY created a truly unique sound that builds bridges from Motown to Liverpool by way of contemporary electronic music. 

MALKY is Bulgarian. It means ‘Little Boy’. Daniel emigrated from Bulgaria to Germany in his infancy. Michael is of Hungarian ancestry. Longing for somewhere to call home is a common theme for the duo and an endless source for musical and lyrical expression.

The release of the duos debut-album SOON in the summer of last year gained strong attention in Germany, including premium TV-features, exceptional print coverage and solid airplay. Being declared “a masterpiece”, MALKY took the album on the road, visiting Germany, Austria and Switzerland twice and playing more than 100 mostly sold out shows almost everywhere. MALKY raised a great deal of international attention by entering the respectable stages of important European Showcase-Festivals such as Eurosonic Noorderslag, Sonic Visions, MaMa Paris and Reeperbahn Festival. Reeperbahn’s “Wunderkind”-program showcases some of Germany’s top talents to the international industry in attendance. Last year’s “Wunderkind”-program saw professionals from all over the world spotting MALKY’s exceptional live performance. Furthermore the duo recently performed for the global music community at MUSEXPO in Los Angeles, which led to some great buzz for the talented artists.

Having had great impact in Germany, MALKY are now ready to conquer the rest of Europe with their DIAMONDS-EP, being released via Columbia/Sony Music in fall 2015, with a brand new album – their debut in territories excluding G/S/A – following early in 2016 to watch out for.
