South London singer/songwriter and creative multicoloured pop artist Malory gears up for her debut EP ‘Dystopia’ with the release of lead single ‘Rapture’. Watch here. The epic production comes courtesy of Danny George as the pair deliver 3 minutes of blissful alt/pop. The orchestral driven anthem ebbs and flows beautifully using layered vocals, tribal drums and folk elements. Lyrically, Malory explains:
“’Rapture’ is a reflection on the death and rebirth of relationships. How the line between pure ecstasy, joy and deep pain & self destruction is so fine.”
Since signing to Metropolis Music Publishing, studio sessions across Toronto, LA and London have helped shape amore sonically mature and engaging sound (from her previous work), as ‘Rapture’ and other tracks from the EP showcase the young artist embracing a more synth driven sound, exploring pop sensibilities and motifs along the way.
‘Rapture’ is accompanied by a dystopian lo-fi music video. A collaboration with long term creative partner and sister Taylor Torr, the video mirrors the double meaning of the track; intense joy and dark sadness. Taylor explains:
“We wanted to play with light and shade, using hues of black, red but also white and blue. It meant we could incorporate themes of destruction and redemption in an abstract way.”
The 22-Year-old has already been championed at radio by XFM (John Kennedy),BBC Radio2(Terry Wogan andDermot O’Leary) andBBC London. Other highlights include supporting George Ezra on tour and live performancesat BBC Introducing Hyde Parkand BBC 6 MusicChris Hawkins’ showcase event.
Recently gaining a reputation as a sync powerhouse, Malory has enjoyed placements including the Cannes Lions Grand prix winning advert “Project Literacy” and the main theme for the American Indie film ‘The Boy Downstairs’.
