MAALA is a 20-year old Auckland-based artist who spends his days working inside a Factory, and spends his nights making music.
The musician has been shrouded in secrecy, with the Auckland-based singer-songwriter giving few interviews around his music - or even revealing his name.
But Maala is actually the work of 20-year-old Sony-signed artist Evan Sinton, and his five-track EP has been a two year labour-of-love.
Sinton has already had high-profile attention, with his single In the Air praised by Kiwi radio DJ Zane Lowe on his new Apple platform Beats 1.
