The U.K. duo Malachai will follow up its 2009 debut CD, Ugly Side Of Love, come February with an album called Return To The Ugly Side. The new effort will again feature the group's unique mix of 1960s pop-psych and hip-hop sounds.
But before that, Malachai has dropped a new MP3 as a teaser for the album. It's a dreamy, mellow track called "Rainbows"and can be heard online at the band's label's website, Domino, USA. The female voice on the cut belongs to Katy Wainwright. The band, by the way, hails from Bristol, and has been influenced by such local acts as Massive Attack and Portishead.
