MOLINO

Schermata 2020-12-07 alle 17.59.31.png

Sci-fi orchestra Molino floats through a lonely and digital world

Molino makes futuristic music from a bygone era, carefully created by musical adventurers from New-Zealand, Germany, 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.
