How often is a summer defined by one track that plays over and over in your head? Odds on, Malak’s latest release could be the one that stands out this year. The young singer/songwriter has come out with a personal but intensely relatable new single that will feature in her upcoming album.
“Can’t Catch an Emotion” digs deep into the emotional journeys of life, and love. Add the silky, velvety tone of Malak’s distinctive voice, and you have a surefire hit. Since entering the local music scene in 2014, she has steadily carved out a niche in the region’s burgeoning music scene with music that hits on the vulnerabilities of today’s Arab woman.
Going from her debut EP release “Alters”, to a number of singles such as, “Wild Summer Hearts” and “Spirits of Time”, it didn’t take long for her music to hit the regional airwaves, and to date there have been over 1 million plays online.
Raised with the music of icons like Cat Stevens, Guns & Roses and Dire Straights, Malak has nonetheless developed her own recognizable style, which has sometimes drawn comparisons with the languorous voice and introspective lyrics of Lana Del Ray.
Her unique talent has already seen her open for big names such as Oscar and The Wolf and Balthazar, and with a debut album slated for release in the summer of 2020, we can expect to hear a lot more of this mesmerizing young songstress.
“Can’t Catch an Emotion” is available to stream on Apple, Spotify, Anghami and more.
