Kamikaze was created in 2011 as an outlet for our musical instincts. At the time we were at art school and the idea was to make the kind of music that would breathe some fresh air into our concept-filled brains. The band has evolved and we have constantly shed our skin, as was necessary for us in order to continue to exist. Now the time has come for another giant step forward.
We no longer feel represented by our name, for it recalls sad and violent acts in a time where humanity needs love and noble acts more than ever. At this time of renewal, a new name has been given to us by the poet Mercure Martini, who has baptised our new creature. So long Kamikaze, long live Marquis Malanga.
Marquis Malanga is currently working on a new album, and we’ll soon post a new song and a video coming straight from Tatum Rush’s magic hat.
