Little Neve White and K Bastian met in a Berlin bar in June 2011. Little Neve who hails from Brighton, was immediately attracted to K, “It wasn’t a romantic thing,” she says, “he was just so enigmatic and I’m naturally curious; I wanted to unravel him.” An impossible task she’ll now readily admit, for where Little Neve is open, beguiling, funny and just a little fragile, Berlin boy K does not give himself up so easily. It is an interesting and compelling dynamic which feeds into the music they create making it impossible not to draw parallels between Mollyhaus and Eurythmics.

Flavoured by influences as wide ranging as Bowie, Lennox, Kate Bush, Moloko and Ella Fitzgerald, the Mollyhaus sound is uniquely identifiable. K’s driving backing tracks are a skilfully drawn kaleidoscope of diamond cut sounds and repeating patterns weaved through with the dip and soar of Little Neve’s sublime vocals. Their synth-based music is more than mere electropop; their lyrics tell stories of twisted gender and the vagaries of being human, delving into the underbelly of society with surprising wit. The strong hooks, melodies and delivery are often at odds with the message they convey, and lyrics like; “You ripped the skin right off my smile, stolen kisses, you made a cake out of my heart, burning wishes,” from their track ‘Widow Maker’ make listening to Mollyhaus rather like viewing David Shrigley: slightly unnerving yet perversely enjoyable. Producer Mark Angelo Lusardi (Duran Duran, Transvision Vamp, OMD) oversaw the creation of their debut EP Red Shoes, which received rave reviews and was perfectly described by one critic as simply,“Achingly uber cool”.

Mollyhaus have electrified audiences in Berlin’s hottest clubs, in Brighton and at the coolest Camden (London) venues. They have already come onto the radar of the illustrious ‘BBC Introducing’ Radio show, with several tracks from ‘Red Shoes’ having received airplay to enthusiastic response. Bayern 3 Radio in Germany have also been championing their music, furthermore, ‘Red Shoes’ was featured under the ‘new and noteworthy’ section on the German iTunes homepage. It seems those Mollyhaus feet are definitely on the march, so just put on your Red Shoes and dance.
