“...emotionally wrought pop, with sweeping chords and a dramatic sense of space”
The Line of Best Fit

“Another piece of Swedish pop to feast your ears upon”
Hillydilly

MAASAI is a Stockholm-based duo consisting of Dominique Teymouri and Zackarias Ekelund. Together they create soulful sonic landscapes with a cinematic touch and lyrical depth. New single ‘Collide’ serves as a stunning example; it stirs the emotions, striking right to the heart with its epic sweep and glacial beauty.

MAASAI’s musical influences range between the effervescent and the atmospheric. Echoes of artists such as Florence & The Machine, Sia and Goldfrapp can be heard in ‘Collide’ along with the duo’s own uniquely dramatic spin on widescreen cinematic pop.

Teymouri and Ekelund met each other between music projects and soon realized that they should join forces.They chose the name MAASAI as a metafor for solidarity and inner strength, as it mirrored the values they hold dear- the word derives from a Kenyan Nilotic ethnic group, and means, my people. Follow-up tracks ’The Healer’ and ‘Forgive Me’ have since held a captive audience something to hold on to while waiting for their debut album. ‘Collide’ is a collaboration with esteemed producer Patrik Berger (Icona Pop, Charli XCX, Robyn) set to be released October 30th.

Hinting to fearless, fragile and all-the-while dreamy atmosphere inhabited in MAASAIs upcoming debut album – set for release November 20th.
