Reliably informed

Leeds-born, North Shields-based Maius Mollis has been garnering a lot of positive attention with a string of excellent single releases, showcasing her immaculately melancholy writing. Rest Of My Life is more full-blooded than her previous releases, with bursts of Greenwood-ish hooks circling around Mollis’ exceptionally candid lyrics.

Her voice is front and centre, and it cuts a vulnerable shade, almost conversational in tone, breaking beautifully in moments of emotional intensity: Kim Deal is an immediate reference point. Strikingly, Rest Of My Life sounds great, making spacious, subtle and nuanced use of guitar, drums and bass. A total earworm that wouldn’t sound out of place on daytime radio, and a real achievement. Maius Mollis is a great songwriter and it’s exciting to anticipate where she goes from here.
