Well, muralim is back on our radar with a track that’s as fluid and mesmerizing as the waters it draws inspiration from. The song “delta” is a tribute to water. Just like the ebb and flow of a river, it weaves through moments of stormy intensity, calm serenity, rapid pace, and leisurely drifts.

For those new to muralim, here’s a quick dive into who they are: Hailing from Zurich, this NewJazz Quintet is the brainchild of saxophonist Mauro Reimann, brought to life as a bachelor project at the Zurich University of the Arts in 2021. They’re not just any fledgling band; after clinching the Best-of-Bachelor Prize and a whirlwind tour across Switzerland, muralim has firmly established they’re in the jazz scene for the long haul. Their earlier single, “acho”, is a celebration of jazz and the magical moments Mauro Reimann experienced in his journey through its world. But wait, there’s more! They’re gearing up to release their first EP in 2023, promising to bring even more of their catchy yet sophisticated sounds our way.

muralim’s mission? To reignite the world’s love affair with jazz, making it resonate with a broader audience by seamlessly fusing it with pop elements. The result? A sound that’s both refreshing and comfortably familiar.

Don’t wait on this one; dive into the refreshing waters of “delta” and let its waves carry you away. muralim is a testament to the fact that jazz is very much alive, evolving, and ready to captivate new generations of listeners.
