Mystical collective Malphino's debut album, Visit Malphino.
Malphino are an outer-national, mystical band from an imagined tropical island that has dreamt up a cinematic score and audio backdrop to their tropical idyll. A promised land of hypnotic cumbia rhythms, subtle digital warbling, accordion textures, voodoo haze and woodblock charm awaits the off-piste explorer willing to step through the arch and Visit Malphino, the debut album from this London-based collective of diaspora musicians and visual artists.
Their debut album Visit Malphino dives deep into the island’s mythology. It’s a 17-track epic that provides the soundboard to years of imaginative cultivation. With clues in the titles, each track represents a different element to the island. It embodies the growth of the Malphino concept from an abstract idea within the minds of a few friends to a more complex fantasy at the centre of a small community of musicians and artists. Speculation is open-ended.
