Morello vs Masaru Mitsu The Duellists
Release Date: April 14, 2015
Label: Self Released
Cultures collide and musical sparks fly in this unique collaboration between British born, L.A-based songwriter/producer Malcolm “Sir Mal” Cross' (drummer for Pete Yorn, the Olms, Minibar and Spiritualized) solo endeavor, on which he teamed up with Japanese multi-instrumentalist Masaru Mitsu (Chocolat, Northern Lights, Cymbals), for his third effort, The Duellists. The project stemmed from a shared interest in obscure guitar bands and 80's synth-pop, which later transformed into a long-distance online friendship that would diminish any cultural boundaries, and resulted in an eclectic, yet tasteful mix of catchy songs about modern life and love.
