Following the release of their final album Beyond Ugly in March, Malachai have unveiled the video for new single ‘Sweet Flower’. This vengeful soliloquy is – according to frontman Gee – “about innate optimism, that deepest innocent part of you that dies a little each time the world wrongs you and how 'over-thinking' and obsessive natures separate us from it even further”
The last panel in the band's Ugly triptych, Beyond Ugly ‘s completion came as a shock to all concerned, least of all the group. After the conclusion of the campaign for their second album, Return To The Ugly Side, members Gee Ealey and Scott Hendy drifted apart with no definitive plans to take up arms together. It was a chance meeting in Bristol that drew the two back into one another's orbit and to the realization that there was some unfinished monkey business. The duo re-engaged slowly and Beyond Ugly began to take shape, featuring appareances from Geoff Barrow (Portishead) and Serge Pizzorno (Kasabian). With the trilogy complete, is this really where the Malachai story ends? As shown by the creative triumph of Beyond Ugly, sometimes it's best not to plan at all and just let it happen. We'll do our best to let you know when it does.
