SHARE NEW SINGLE ‘FAMOUS LAST WORDS’ ON NICE SWAN RECORDS

 

London four-piece Malady have today shared their brand new single and video ‘Famous Last Words’ via Nice Swan Records – the tastemaker label who were instrumental in the formative steps of some of indie music’s finest emerging and established talents including Blossoms, Sports Team, Pip Blom, FUR, and more. 
Produced by Malady and Mixed & Engineered by Eduardo De La Paz, ‘Famous Last Words’ explores Malady’s existentialist take on modern life and scratches the surface of the band’s love of more electronic leaning textures and tendencies. Malady explain: “‘Famous Last Words’ is a rumination about purpose – the realisation that any notion of inherent, and/or divine, purpose is false and subsequently the futile, scrambled attempts to forge meaning in places that meaning can never really be found.”

Malady was birthed as a result of Percy Junior Cobbinah (vocals/guitar) and Clark (guitar/synth) frequently turning up at the same gigs as one another; Cobbinah and Ertan Cimen (drums) were first acquainted uni house parties; while Clark met bassist Khaleem Mitchell-Patterson at college. Fusing musical elements from dub, post-rave, early dubstep and IDM with formative indie guitar music, the band draws inspiration from day-to-day living, focussing on conversations and social observations. 

The band’s debut single ‘London I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down’ was released last year as part of the Nice Swan Introduces series which also featured breakout releases from the likes of Jelly Cleaver, Courting, Hallan, and Sprints. ‘London I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down’ was lauded by the likes of Clash, DIY, Dork, Hero, NME, So Young, Stereogum, Yuck and more. Malady rounded off 2020 with tips on the NME 100 and Dork HYPE List, and were crowned Ones To Watch in 2021 by Fred Perry, The Daily Star, and Gigwise. Malady made impressive strides at U.K. radio also with repeat plays from Radio 1’s Jack Saunders and Huw Stephens.
