Multicoloured pop artist MALORY has released her second single and follow up to the well received debut ‘Rapture’. This time round we see the flourishing musician continue to be inspired by dystopian motifs as she pens a story of two lovers caught in a 1950’s post-apocalyptic underground bunker (think ‘Stranger Things’ meets ‘Blast From The Past’).

Having co-wrote and produced the track with the much in demand studio wizard Jamie Evans, the pair have delivered a treat for the ears, full of charm, wit and musical expression – juxtaposing dark chaos and joyous celebration within it. The bass heavy instrumentation of distorted synths and upbeat melodic stabs and tribal drums is expertly done and showcases MALORY’s beautiful vocal delivery.
Her debut offering, this summer’s ‘Rapture’ (alongside a self made video with her sister) introduced her powerful take on alt pop. Speaking of the new track, she explains:
“This song is the purple and green, to Rapture’s blacks and reds in my sonic rainbow, an introduction into the surreal and playful side of my imagination – I also wrote it wondering if the deadening effect of suburban life might not be worse than nuclear fallout.. As Bob Dylan once said, ‘Instead of learning to live they are learning to die.’ (It’s also the last cocktail you have before the lights go out…)”
