Although 2020 wasn’t what anyone had hoped for Majak Door pushed through releasing not only their very chilled take on Stardusts ‘The Music Sounds Better With You’ but two exciting new singles ‘Everybody Wants You’ and ‘Will She Leave You’ receiving strong Triple J airplay and honorable mentions in media outlets like Pilerats and features on Spotify editorial playlists like ‘Indie Arrivals.’
Once the brunt of 2020 had finished, the band were immediately back in action playing shows across Victoria while they waited for the other state borders to open up. In 2021 the band has already sold out multiple shows including The Workers Club and Wrangler Studios in Melbourne and supporting close friends Loose Bricks on their headline run of dates back in April with multiple dates all selling out before the band went into another lengthy lockdown.
After announcing and releasing their debut self titled album in September of 2021, Majak Door released quality single after another from ‘L’aqua Salata (Ain’t So Sweet) to ‘Smoke In The Air’ and the irresistible ‘My Nostalgia’ leaving fans of the band in awe of the musical depth and thoughtful storytelling in their lyrics.
After selling out their album launch in December Majak Door are making up for the lost time with a ruthless touring schedule and plenty more music to come.
