Molyneaux — “Sorrow”
Molyneaux presents her new album “Sorrow” at KET, accompanied by Alexis Efremidis on bass and Myrto Samolada on vocals. Influenced by the electronic underground scene of Athens, she writes melancholic melodies and airy vocals, creating soundscapes and words that converse with her experiences and the way they reconstruct the fluid present. The opening act is by Dimitra Kousteridou, researcher, composer and sound artist, in a set of improvised sound compositions with handmade instruments.
With a degree in Clinical Psychology, Molyneux, during her career took lessons in classical piano, music theory, classical guitar, voice and participated in choirs. In 2016 she started classical and jazz singing alongside Georgia Sillaiou and created her first cover band in Thessaloniki, Belle Reve. In the summer of 2019 she met Magenta Flaws and turned to the trip hop sound. She appeared with them at Temple and wrote the vocals for “Broken Glasses” on their second album produced by Cayetano. In the summer of 2021, she released her first single, “I’ll stay here”, which is the soundtrack of the film “Sammer” by Stelios Christoforos. Other collaborations followed, with the most definitive one being with musician and producer Angelos Paschalidis in the duo “Agatha & Molyneaux”, with electronic sounds, clubby rhythms and spoken word. On Friday 17 March 2023, her first full-length album, the EP “Sorrow”, was released on the Just Gazing Records label. “Sorrow” is a deeply personal work, reflecting the musician’s journey to discovering her true self.
