Biography

Malajube are an indie rock band from Montréal, Québec, Canada. They sing in French and have three albums out on Dare to Care Records.

The group made itself known in 2004 with the release of its first album, “Le Compte Complet.” Critics welcomed the disc with positive reviews, which allowed the group to become instantly famous in the Québécois music scene. Several of its songs, such as “Le Métronome” and “La Valérie,” were prominent mainstays on several Québec radio stations. For the production of the album, the group turned to Martin Pelland from fellow Montreal band The Dears.

In the months that followed the release of their first album, Malajube launched a tour across Québec, participating in several major festivals, such as Les FrancoFolies de Montréal.

In February 2006, the quartet released its sophomore album, Trompe-l’œil, which also received a warm welcome on the part of Québec media. Collaborations with singer Pierre Lapointe, Québecois rap group Loco Locass, and the use of a wide variety of instruments has contributed to the album’s success. Trompe-l’œil also began to attract attention in English Canada in July, when it was shortlisted for the inaugural Polaris Music Prize, and in the United States in October, when it was a featured review on Pitchfork Media. In 2006, they won three Félix Award at the 28th edition of the Gala de l’ADISQ: two for Trompe-l’œil, “Best alternative album” and “Best cover art” while they were proclaimed “Revelation of the year 2006”.

Their third album, Labyrinthes, was released on February 10th 2009.

    v It's fine on its own, but it's a disapointement for me compared to their other release, and a poor follow-up to the superb Labyrinthes.

    Not a lot of quebecers use last.fm, I conclude this. Not bad for a band from quebec, tough.

    A really underrated band acording to Last.fm ... or maybe - not a lot of quebecers use last.fm. Whatever, they should be popular worldwide.

    Je ne rêve plus, ils ne viendront jamais en France. C'est dommage j'aurais bien aimé les voir.

    I find it a bit obscure that they're using Malajube on a Dell commercial anyway.

    Does anyone else sing the lyrics to Montreal -40ºC when that Dell commercial comes on?
