The surreal fanfare from Elsewhere
Molino makes futuristic music from a bygone era, carefully created by musical adventurers from New-Zealand, Germany, Italy, Holland and Iceland. An indie pop orchestra with hissing electronics and ominous brass instruments, marching through abandoned streets in a dystopian world. Shattered fragments of Thom Yorke and Tune-Yards roar in a sky crackling with electricity, bending over a valley of tilting skyscrapers where sounds echo from bands like Beirut, Balthazar and Efterklang.
Stinging pop songs curl from this bubbling mishmash, thickened with the silver sound of brass instruments, the foundation of the Molino sound.

In recent years, Molino has released three LPs and one EP, played festivals such as So What’s Next? and Cross-Linx and won Keep an Eye The Records Award and the Best Musician Prize at De Grote Prijs van Nederland. In 2021 the band released their latest LP "lo and behold" and there's a new record in the pipeline scheduled for spring 2023.
