Watch: Malady Reveal Music Video For "Famous Last Words"

London indie pop/jangle pop/alt band Malady have revealed the video for their newest single "Famous Last Words".

The song is part of our current playlist and is out now through Nice Swan Records. Buy it here.

Speaking about it, the band said: “Famous Last Words’ is a rumination about purpose – the realisation that any notion of inherent, and/or divine, purpose is false and subsequently the futile, scrambled attempts to forge meaning in places where meaning can never really be found.”

I’ll be completely honest: I didn’t like this song at first says lead singer Percy Junior Cobbinah, it had a voice that was just a little too rough and ready, the overall production felt a little too paired back, and nothing about the song especially grabbed me.

But then the chorus got stuck in my head while I was making lunch. It’s always the silliest of things, I suppose. So I went back and listened to it again. And then another time. By the fifth time, I was converted, and I now I see it as a solid electro-rocker that isn’t bombastic or spastic, but rather low-key and supremely cool. For a song that features a fair amount of rave-tastic electronic effects, it’s oddly relaxing, and it really benefitted from multiple replays and loops.
