Biography

Formed in 1995 by three former school friends under the influence of the so-called indie/wave era - is the german incarnation of the shoegazer generation.
In 1999, they have recorded their debut album “Not Here, Not Now”, sound landscapes from an inverse universe washed against the walls of their studio. Find out what kind of sound walls you can build without synthesizers. Total effects, all guitar, a concentric stream of desire and melancholy. Layer for layer the dome is growing from freely flowing emotions, in the dispute of the musicians. guitar vs. guitar. His voice against hers.

“Outerbeats” is the title of the second album (2001) - and it’s really characteristic for the music. while the first album had this touch of their idols Slowdive, Malory are now defining their own cosmos, their own time. The songs of the new album “The Third Face” (2005) open a door to a spheric world. The slowness of the moment becomes a journey through the time, a long way through the orbit. It floats atmospherically around you with angelic vocals and experimental sound scapes using guitars as sound tools. These songs deserve only to be played at high volumes so that the sound swallows your room and your mind.

During 2006, their first album, “Not Here, Not Now”, was reissued by Clairecords, including two bonus tracks and a different artwork.

    I've heard tons of shoegaze/blissrock groups but none of them sound like Malory. They were one-of-a-kind. And yes, they're still alive but they ceased activity some time ago.

    @Soba4iKusok, no unfortunately, I really don't know anything like Malory. They get compared to the pioneer shoegaze bands like Slowdive, of course, but I don't even think that those are similar enough. Definitely no contemporary bands like Malory that are floating around today.

    Does anybody know something like this? All bands recommended here are different, except of Monster Movie. Only the usual shoegaze but nothing else as melodic and awesome as Malory.

    Pearl Diver is the best album, I think. The first part of this album sounds better for me then any shoegaze/dream-pop else, even better then Slowdive.

    They won't come to any cities lol, they've ceased touring for quite some time now. I don't even think they're still active, sadly.
