MOLTENO- Profile picture.jpg

Atmospheric dream pop with flavours of folk and trip hop, MOLTENO is all about the elements, the moon and the stars. Her songs are off and on planet Earth, about things that are bigger than us, things that we don't understand.

Her dreamy soundscapes start taking shape in her home studio and are built up by her team to blend real with surreal.

'Ocean' played on BBC Introducing (Gary Crowley - BBC Radio London)

Fresh On The Net 'Fresh Fave' (Tom Robinson - BBC Radio 6)

'Dakota' featured on 'Indie Shuffle' and 'Gegen den Strom' (Official Spotify playlists) - 20K+ streams

'Almost glacially chilled, with subtle trip-hop instrumentation 'Ocean' is just the latest must listen from one of the UK's most promising female pop artists.' Earthly Pleasures on Ocean

'No doubt set for stratospheric success.' Audiotox

'MOLTENO’s vocal is as cool as it is pearlescent. Clear, controlled and evocative, it hovers over the shifting landscapes like the moon which it seeks out..... Listen, intently, and you’ll be transfixed. It’s utterly magical.' Fresh on The Net on 1000 Moons

'Sounds like what we imagine a Bat For Lashes and Björk lovechild would sound like' York Calling

'MOLTENO’s sound is wading with a pretty good group of contemporaries. From Bjork to Kate Bush, the London-based singer is able to find her own niche, while also taking from some of the best female voices in pop music.' Born Music Online

'She’s just glorious in this track. With vocals close to smooth tree resin, it glows like the Amber colors, between the golden sky and our mortal terrestrial present.' comeherefloyd on Ocean

'MOLTENO has a voice that is simultaneously delicate and commanding. That conflict is particularly powerful in 'Dakota,' a song inspired by the protests concerned with the environmental impact of the Dakota Access Pipeline’s plan to transport crude oil across North and South Dakota' Indie Obsessive on Dakota

'An otherworldly and inspiring three minutes of alternative pop perfection.' Earthly Pleasures on 1000 Moons

'Jess Molteno’s lyrical flare coupled with her impressive vocal range and entrancing harmonies had us hooked from first listen' Audiotox on Hint

'Fusing uptempo familiarities with downtempo elements, MOLTENO captivates the listener with lyrical mastery and instrumental magic.' Get Some Magazine on Hint

'The sound of a human voice trumps everything amid the eerie atmosphere of a gravity free galaxy. This wonder from the London based Jess Molteno Murray will stoke the imagination, much like Bjork does and there are plenty of similarities between both artists.'
mp3hugger on 1000 Moons

'Songs show a unique direction' Phil Pickett (Ivor Novello Award-winning composer)

'Hauntingly alt folk sound' Peter Kent (gig reviewer)
