MOLASS is not your ordinary band; they are a movement redefining the Neo Soul genre. Their music is a captivating fusion of old and new, a play between hot and cold, evoking emotions that are hard to put into words. Inspired by bands like ‘Hiatus Kaiyote’, ‘Moses Sumney’ and ‘The Alan Parsons Project’ their music takes a leap into unexpected depths, breaking conventional genre boundaries.
Funk, jazz, and electronic vibes blend seamlessly with the distinctive, multifarious voice of front woman Marissa Möller, crafting an enchanting Groovy Fairytale that remains tantalizingly elusive. The ensemble is completed by keyboardist Jan Lammert, bassist Julian Schwiebert, and drummer Lambert Windges, infusing MOLASS’s sound with a rare authenticity that resonates with both the ear and the soul.
Hailing from Cologne (Germany), the band secured the 2nd place in Germany’s largest jazz newcomer competition Future Sounds at the Leverkusener Jazztage in 2021. In 2022 MOLASS released their second studio album ‘Piece Of Mass’ followed shortly by their EP ‘Heaviness & Hopes’.
