‘Fell For You’ followed the release of ‘Breakout’, the first single to be taken from her forthcoming second album due later this year. The single received strong support from Lauren Laverne and Chris Hawkins at 6Music, and achieved critical acclaim from the likes of Drowned In Sound, Line Of Best Fit and more.

"Quirky, cute, original and clever… the true definition of indie-pop" – Chris Hawkins, BBC 6Music
“’Breakout’ combines the effervescent eclecticism of tUnE-yArDs with her own radio-friendly pop sensibilities.” – Line Of Best Fit
MALKA first made waves on the music scene as Tamara Schlesinger, the frontwoman of acclaimed alt-folk collective 6 Day Riot and also as a prolific songwriter. Her past work has been included in a host of high-profile syncs for TV series and Hollywood blockbusters – most notably Skins, Scream 4 and 127 Hours. Her voice can also be heard in Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. Her music has also been featured in Degrassi Next Class and MTV’s Catfish recently.
Tamara released her critically acclaimed debut MALKA album Marching To Another Beat in 2015. Since then she’s become a BBC 6Music favourite and has clocked up big support from Lauren Laverne, who recently featured MALKA’s previous single ‘Wonder Why’ in her ‘Best Of 2016’ playlist, alongside Steve Lamacq, Nemone and Chris Hawkins at the station, while Huw Stephens is a big fan of MALKA at Radio 1.
