The Maltese Falcons is a duo featuring Duckling Monster (of Dunedin’s retro-futurists The Futurians) on keyboards/vox. The multi-instrumentalist Kraus rounds out the duo on bass, drums, guitar and synth.
Kraus hails from Auckland NZ and has been churning out top-notch experimental sounds since 2001. After founding The Futurians, he has gone on to form Olympus (with Stefan Neville of Pumice), Pouffe with vocalist Matt Plunkett, and many other projects while recording solo under the name Kraus. Much of his output is available at kraus.co.nz and on the Free Music Archive platform.
