It’s official: everyone’s favourite Cambridge rock band is back with new music. Mallory Knox released a pretty simple video for their latest single, Giving It Up, yesterday, and I really enjoyed the track. You can listen to the track here:
The vocals are a little rougher around the edges than the band’s usual fare, and the bass sounds a little louder than usual which gives the song a more grungy feel.
Giving It Up has made me pretty damn excited to hear the band’s upcoming third full length album, Wired. The record is due out next March, and I’ll be looking out to see if any more singles are released, to give me a better idea of what direction the band will be heading in.
Mallory Knox will also be heading out on tour during March and April next year to celebrate the release of their new record.
