London risers Malady share pulsating new effort ‘Pressure Builds’ (out today - January 19th), the second reveal from the band’s forthcoming debut EP ‘All Pressure, No Diamonds’, set for release February 10th via Modern Sky.

Fresh from an acclaimed support run alongside indie titans Wet Leg late last year, the Londoners will be heading back out on the road early next month, coinciding with the arrival of their much anticipated debut EP - an intense blast of indie and electronic fusion that’s cemented their soaring reputation throughout the emerging landscape. 

Detailing their upcoming single release, the thrilling follow-up to tantalising lead track ‘Hyperreal’, Malady stated: “‘Pressure Builds’ is ultimately a song about trying. and failing, to make it work in a system that is set up to work against you and the melancholy that arises as a result”.

With multiple dates already notched up alongside English Teacher, Opus Kink, Swim Deep and Hotel Lux in recent times, the group’s profile continues to excel at an impressive rate, with significant praise across the press community (Stereogum, NME, The Sunday Times, So Young, DIY, Loud & Quiet, Dork, Clash, Gigwise, Rough Trade, Notion, Under The Radar) and countless spins on the BBC Radio 1/BBC 6 Music (Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley) airwaves accompanying their first few initial releases.

Malady’s ‘Pressure Builds’ is out now via Modern Sky and will be available on all digital platforms.

Malady is Percy Junior Cobbinah (vocals, guitarist), Khaleem Richards (bassist), Charlie Clark (guitarist, synths), Ashley Noel-Hirst (drums)
