Kilo Lounge makes its official return (finally). Thank you to everyone who's waited so patiently for this date, and to everyone who's helped us make this happen. We'll see you at the lounge.

Young Magic is Jakarta-born Indonesian-American vocalist Melati Malay, and Sydney-born songwriter-producer Isaac Emmanuel. The pair met in New York City in 2010 and began collaborating above a speakeasy in Brooklyn. Alongside original member Michael Italia, the trio signed to Carpark Records (representing the likes of artists like Toro Y Moi, Beach House, Dan Deacon and more) on the strength of one single (Sparkly/You With Air) and a wave of positive press.

In 2015, Young Magic released Remixes Vol. 1—a pay-as-you-feel charity album, with all proceeds going to the Aboriginal Benefits Foundation, an organization facilitating health and arts projects in Australian Aboriginal communities. The same year, Malay returned to her birthplace of Java, Indonesia, to begin work on a new collection of music. She rented a small shack by the water and spent her time gathering field recordings and collecting stories from her families’ history. The result is Young Magic’s most breathtaking album to date, Still Life, released on May 13, 2016.
