Molino is a band based in Amsterdam and Hamburg with members hailing from New Zealand, Germany, Iceland and the Netherlands. Theirmusic draws from a variety of genres, such as indie, electronic pop and jazz.
The project gravitates around two multi-instrumentalists. Oliver Emmitt from New Zealand and Linus Kleinlosen from Germany, who write and produce the music together. Emmitt is featured as a vocalist, trombonist and on guitar and ukelele. Kleinlosen on the saxophone and synthesizers. Around them they have gathered a live band consisting of Matthías Ingiberg Sigurðsson on clarinet and electronics, Daniël Eskens on electric bass and synthesizers and Jeroen Batterink on drums. Their live shows emerge the audience in a unique world of indiepop, subtle horn textures and bursts of experimental synths.
The band recorded their first EP, Dodgy Dealings, in 2017. The same year Molino won the Records prize by Keep an Eye foundation and in 2019 they won the best musician prize at the Grote Prijs van Nederland. The band has toured the Netherlands, Germany and Iceland and 2020 will see the release of their long-awaited album, Leviathan.
"Molino is a total musical surprise that will knock you off your feet."
