Mallavora released Ego, the first single off their debut EP, in March. Ego was their best performing track to date with 50,000 listens in its premier week, catching the attention of prominent YouTuber ‘Sina-Drums’ who posted a cover of the track’s drum sequence to her channel.
The second addition to Mallavora’s debut EP is Deceiver, a single exposing the darker roots of the band. Taking influence from the likes of KoЯn and Mastodon alongside the band’s distinctive heavy groove and soaring vocal melodies, Deceiver explores the theme of domestic abuse. The lyrics depict someone trapped by toxic love, senselessly tortured by its duality. Anguish in armour: the track pulls between gloomy verse and overwhelming chorus, before a steep escalation to an intense finish.
Deceiver track was released on 26th April 2020, and will be followed by a music video on 3rd May.
