part of Refract:19
New for Refract:19 the ‘Sup Stage will showcase a late-night programme of emerging artists.
Malthus (formerly known as Lindblad) is a London-based musician, composer, producer and director from West Lancashire. A classical pianist by training, his self-produced work offers a contemporary take on soul - blending aching, operatic vocals with brooding jazz and organic dance music.
Though yet to release a solo record, Malthus has composed fashion film scores for Wonderland Magazine, Hunger, and The Ragged Priest, and has opened for fellow musician RHYE. He was the cover of French newspaper Le Monde’s Le Magazine Du Monde for April 2019, and has been featured in international collaborative projects with designers JW Anderson, Palomo Spain, and Gucci. Malthus' visual and written work has been featured in Coeval, Vogue, Intern, Cluny MCR, Klatblut, and his own publication, Raw Forms Magazine.
Touted as a must-see live performance by venues across Greater Manchester, Malthus promises exciting costumes, visuals and performance value when showcasing his music.
