Interview: Mali Mali

After the release of his 2010 EP Brotherly, Mali Mali (aka Auckland musician Ben Tolich)  was advantageously sidetracked by the success of another musical exploit. He’d been playing keys for Avalanche City for a while before they shot to national prominence with that song, ‘Love love love’. After riding that wave, and touring extensively with Avalanche City, Tolich was ready to pen to paper again and focus on recording his debut album Gather ‘round the Gooseclock.

He took a risk and left behind a tight network of friends and fellow musicians in Auckland to record with The Middle East’s Mark Myers in his North Queensland studio, and by all accounts it’s a risk that paid off. We spoke to Tolich recently about the process involved in refining the sound of Mali Mali and figuring out who he is as an artist.
