Reeling you in with a seductive neo-soul production is Danish singer/songwriter Malu with her debut single – Polish.
Malu’s soft and warm vocal tones surround you with impeccable, soothing melodies as she reflects on our painted facades of perfectionism. Creating the perfect image has indeed become the modern pursuit of happiness. However, there are consequences.
Malu’s impact is immediate, captivating in
sound and vision.
The official video, directed by Mattis Huus Heurlin, is the visual cherry to top this gorgeous single. Dreamy in focus and high in filmography style, Malu’s impact is immediate, captivating in sound and vision.
Laying on top of a mountain of mattresses, Malu mirrors the famous Danish Hans Christian Andersen story The Princess on the Pea (Prinsessen på ærten). In the story, a prince is required to marry a true princess. When a woman arrives claiming that she is a real princess, the prince’s mother tests her by burying a pea under a huge stack of mattresses and then ordering the woman to sleep on them. Only a true princess would have an uncomfortable night!
I think we’ve just discovered a new princess in Danish R&B, without any rough sleeping!
