Hana Malhas

 

continued

I've seen Malhas twice, and both times I've been impressed by her stage presence and her way of responding to the distinctiveness of the occasion. At Hollerfest last summer she performed in the shadowy log cabin, accompanying herself on piano and joined by only a single cellist. The effect was haunting. Amid the bustle of Noel Night in Detroit last winter, she appeared with her delightfully named new band, the Overthinkers, and passed out instant cameras to the audience, asking them to take pictures of her or each other and then return the cameras.

The Overthinkers will be appearing with Malhas at the Ark on May 31 (see Nightspots), when she releases her new album. I've heard some rough drafts from it, and she seems to be going in the direction of writing band-based hooks that stick in your head.    (end of article)
