‘Tripping Up’ Transforms MOLTENO’s Influences Into A Work Of Art

Solo artist MOLTENO has transformed her lo-fi pop and alternative R&B influences into a work of art. The single blends these influences into a single astral plane.

She captures a soundscape that blends the real with the surreal. Sharing a style similar to that of Bjork, ‘Tripping Up’ extends their shared passion for Earth transcending soundscapes.

“Clear, controlled & evocative – MOLTENO’s vocal is pearlescent” – Fresh On The Net.

Tripping Up’ is MOLTENO’s self-confessed jolt of the subconscious. The track tackles the topic of relationship-induced toxic behaviour & self destruction. Atmospheric vocals accommodate her eerily yet warm lyrics, which centre around lack of control.

She creates her music at her home studio, working with other artists at a later date to build on the sound. The shared artistry of MOLTENO’s music & visuals is magical. Her previous releases attracted support from BBC Introducing, Spotify Editorial teams, Get Some Magazine, Indie Obsessive & Audiotox amongst others.

MOLTENO will release the music video for ‘Tripping Up’ with the single, therefore creating a fully immersive listening and viewing experience. Directed by Daisy Moseley, it encapsulates the rhythm of ‘Tripping Up’, alongside lucid imagery that flows fluidly. The visuals follow the demise of a young woman, played by Tind Soneby Wäneland, capturing the feeling of being out of your depth and out of place.
