Track of the Day: Malaki – ‘Never Mind’

The song urges listeners to discard the time period “never mind” in its entirety, as hiding your feelings solely does injury.

“It’s an anthem for the individuals who have discovered solace in restoration and a light for individuals who are looking for it. I want individuals to bounce to it, but to feel liked in a community that will generally make them feel isolated and use alcohol or drugs to capture emotions they so crave.”

Breaking through as one of Ireland’s most prolific and thrilling young artists, Malaki has seen early assist from the likes of BBC Radio One’s Jack Saunders, BBC R1 Introducing with Gemma Bradley and BBC ATL Introducing, to name a couple of, in addition to showing on Ireland’s The Late Late Show in 2021.
