After finding success with her band Motel Raphael, Montréal-based Canadian singer-songwriter Maya Malkin is now launching her solo career. “Hostage”, thus, comes as her debut single and one that most indie-pop fans should find delightful. The song is marked by honest lyrics and vulnerable vocals. Still, it’s so catchy and easy to sing along to.
Working with Motel Raphael band, Maya released two albums, played at the big stage (such as SXSW) and even toured Canada twice. Her new endeavor will definitely take her much further.
