MALACHAI set to unleash ‘Ugly Side Of Love’ on 19 April 2010 on Double Six

The album is preceded by single ‘Snowflake’ on 12 April

“Malachai are into everyone from Public Image Ltd to Tricky; from Morricone to UNKLE; and from Bushkiller to Boards of Canada - which is possibly why everyone from Annie Mac to Gilles Peterson are into Malachai” – The Guardian

On 19 April 2010 Domino imprint Double Six are to release the ‘Ugly Side of Love’ album by “stand-alone Bristol sensation” (Mojo) Malachai.

Initially released on Portishead’s Geoff Barrow’s Invada label (under the band’s old name Malakai) last year, the 13 track album will be preceded by the band’s debut radio single for Double Six ‘Snowflake’, which is set for release a week earlier on 12 April.

"Malachai mix Love-style garage psychedelia and trippy samples with modern production savvy. The result is catchy, off-kilter backdrops for vocals that are a clear tribute to Horace Andy. Think Mellow Gold-era Beck crossed with the Kinks."  -- The Observer
