Stepping into frame, London newcomers Malady have unveiled their debut single ‘London, I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down’
After making a stir with live shows across the capital towards the end of last year and the start of 2020, debut single ‘London, I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down’ breathes with that same spirit of introspective looks at late-night city culture. With touches of late 00s indie and electronica feeding into their sound, it’s a bold and refreshing opening statement.
Speaking about the track, lead vocalist Percy Junior Cobbinah said: “I must’ve heard LCD Soundsystem’s ‘New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down’ and thought the love-hate sentiment behind the tune mirrored the feelings I had, and still have, with London. The topic of the tune isn’t news to anyone but it felt necessary to document the confusion and sadness felt by how inaccessible and hostile the city is becoming to live in for most ordinary people who have most, if not all, of their lives here.”
The release comes as a part of Nice Swan Records and RIP Records new series ‘Nice Swan Introduces…’ which has recently put out singles from up and coming newbies such as Courting and Sprints
