Music by the emerging artist Mafalda has a magical effect of awakening your emotional side. As soon as one of her songs surges through your speakers, her beautiful lyrics, voice, and vibe tug at your softer, more solemn self.
With angelic vocals that find balance between strength and sweetness, Mafalda entices listeners to lean into her secret, soulful world. Her elegant lyrics have a way of striking a nostalgic chord in you—you’ll feel as if her woes, heartbreaks, and triumphs came straight from your own memory. Her work is brilliantly centered around universal truths and experiences, giving listeners a moving connection to her words.
The production underneath her soaring voice only escalates the power of her smoldering vocal storytelling with deep, dark melodies that make you want to hit replay. Mafalda’s emotive voice, poetic lyrics, and moving production will have her “dark pop” songs stuck in your head all night.
After the releases of her well received singles “Don’t Let Go,” “Run,” and “Awake,” this London-born Berklee-grad is continuing to work on her EP in New York City, most recently releasing her critically acclaimed track, “Goodbyes.” Don’t miss the chance to see her beautiful live performances.
