With sounds oscillating between rock, punk and bubblegum pop, Malajube distinguishes themselves with intelligent and meticulous French lyrics, abrasive guitars, virulent bass, nervous keyboards, and raging drums. Although hailing from the artistically rich music scene, the group has a sound unlike any of their geographical contemporaries, and in fact has heard superlative comparison when mentioned alongside Montreal pride Arcade Fire.

THANKS SO MUCH for this post. I had little hope of finding/listening to their first 2 records [Didn't even know they had albums before Labyrinthes until I started looking into them. I like the tunes I've heard so far; they retain a pop sensibility and melody, and I'm hoping their other stuff does, too. I appreciate the time and effort to put together such a great blog.
