Hot and cold. Cool and touching. Music, that resembles a surreal metamorphosis and interconnects contrasts. Old fashioned-nostalgic and modern Neo Soul sounds conflate into a groovy fairytale. A distinctive and multifarious voice, which cannot be pigeonholed. Visually stunning stories, that laugh about their own melancholy, take on a journey inside a wooden cloud, where polyrhythm meets whistle notes.
The Band MOLASS was founded in September 2017 in Cologne, Germany by Marissa Möller, the bands vocalist/songwriter and keyboarder Jan Lammert. He extends the compositions with experimental rhythms and harmonies and thereby creates sophisticated arrangements. Lambert Windges (drums) and Julian Schwiebert (bass) complete the Soul and Jazz-inspired MOLASS-Sound.
2018 the band releases their debut album Green Sky, which became album of the month in coolibiri Magazin, Düsseldorf. MOLASS wins several german competitions like the Jazz Challenge Viersen and played at renowned festivals like Jazzrally Düsseldorf, international Jazzfestival Viersen and Muiskmesse Frankfurt. In 2021 MOLASS gets second place at Germany’s biggest Jazz-Newcomer-Prize „Future Sounds“ at Leverkusener Jazztage. The band releases their new album „Piece Of Mass“ in 2022.
