one of canada's most-revered indie-rock acts - malajube - return with their ambitious third album, 'labyrinthes', on city slang records. 'labyrinthes' by name and labyrinthine by nature, malajube's third album is a delirious fantasia, bursting with energy and inventiveness and moments of unhinged beauty. their extravagant pop is suffused with an underlying sadness whilst buoyed by an irrepressible exuberance and joy. malajube first emerged from the artistically rich montreal music scene in 2004 and quietly impressed with their debut record 'le compte complet' before drawing a significant amount of praise for their second album 'trompe-l'oeil', which earned them three nominations at the 2007 juno awards and two flix awards at l'autre gala adisq, for alternative album of the year and album cover. malajube's native language is french but the songs are so powerful that language should be no obstacle to the english speaking listener. blending elements of classic rock with flaming lips-style euphoria and harmony-soaked elo pop, garage rock in the style of les savy fav with swirly gallic keyboard sounds and grand orchestration, malajube have forged a truly unique sound.
