Biography

There are at least two bands with the name Malachai:


1) The following is about the Bristol Band.
They are comprised of Gee (vocals) and Scott Hendy (aka Boca 45, music). Their sound is a mix of beats and samples, drawing on a wide range of influences from dub to sixties pop, all tied together by Gee’s distinctive voice.

Discovered by Geoff Barrow from the Bristol band Portishead, to date Malakai have released a limited-edition 12” on Barrow’s Invada label, called ‘Fading World’. This track was used as the music to accompany the ‘I Count: Stop Climate Chaos’ video that first aired at the 2007 Glastonbury Festival.

‘Fading World’ is set to be followed by the band’s major label debut, ‘EP 1’ on Island Records later in 2007. The lead track from ‘EP 1’, titled ‘The Battle’ has already received considerable hype from Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe.


2) Surgido em 2005 no Brasil, o Malachai mescla influências do Rock Rural, Progressivo e Psicodélico produzido no país nas décadas de 1960 e principalmente de 1970 com os primórdios do Rock americano e dos estilos que deram origem ao gênero, como o Country e o Blues. Ainda assim, o Malachai quer distância da palavra nostalgia. Com uma proposta artística de inquietude e criação de conceitos instigantes sempre olhando para frente, a vontade é justamente modernizar esses estilos que fizeram a cabeça dos músicos do Presente, Passado e Futuro, ultilizando as novas tecnologias. Partindo desse ponto, a banda constrói uma identidade própria e fala de um mundo que soa mágico, mas que é um reflexo do mundo que conhecemos. Através de muito surrealismo e ironia, o Malachai canta as mazelas e as delícias da vida com a mesma paixão.

    i know i shouldn't but i really do get a pretentious satisfaction knowing that i discovered this lot years before fifa 11. I feel satisfied but then a bit of a twat at the same time. New Album does have a different feel

    Really like the sounds, hate the lack of development in their songs. What Return to the Ugly Side really needs is 10 more minutes to expand on some of these delicious hooks.

    Losing the k in favour of a 'ch' has been a liberating experience for all concerned, we weren't sure at first but now we've grown used to it we both see and feel the difference its made, here's a short list of other words that have benefited from the same revision.. make - mache= 'Make's great but with a simple alteration you have a suggestion of what to make with, bonus! Take - Tache= sure, have a shave, 'take' it all off but with a simple alteration(and if you're not too late) maybe there's still enough under your nose for that Magnum PI look you've always dreamt of Leek - Leech= Leeks might work in a casserole but they won't eat away at that dead flesh around a tropical wound will they? and when gangrine sets in you're hardly going to be in the mood for Max Boyce are you? think on Mx

    Came across this interesting little act in the related videos for a Dawnshape video. Thought Snowflake was a bit meh at first, but it slowly grew on me in the space of ten minutes. Now I am listening to the album and it is fantastic so far. This.. this is not an interesting story..

    I've been addicted to Snowflake since early this year. But I'm glad it's finally getting the attention it deserves through FIFA 11.
