The Oxfordshire-based three-piece UK punch-groove merchants MOLLY KARLOFF will release their new single ‘She Said’ (Romesh Remix) on Friday February 19th 2021.
All proceeds will be donated to the UK mental health charity Oxfordshire Mind.
The single can be pre-saved and donations can be made: https://mollykarloff.hearnow.com
A taster video (shared below) signals-in slaloming chords, enveloping bass-notes and rumbling rhythms that concentrate the mind: with ever-compelling vocals and, of course, muscular musicianship.
“Lockdowns are bad for mental health…”
“Lockdowns are bad for mental health,” says Molly Karloff’s guitarist and lead singer, Simon Gee.
“We’ve decided to raise money to help those people who are suffering most. Mental health is a serious issue and that’s why the band are showing their support by donating all proceeds from the new single Oxfordshire Mind.”
“Mind provides help and support to anyone affected by mental health problems. People can donate by pre-saving and ordering the single from https://mollykarloff.hearnow.com or they can donate via our JustGiving page at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/molly-karloff.”
“We’re thrilled to hear that the rock band Molly Karloff has chosen to support Oxfordshire Mind by donating the proceeds of their new single,” says Kathryn Pickup, Community Fundraiser at Oxfordshire Mind.
“The pandemic is changing our lives and placing huge amounts of stress on our mental health. The self-isolation and social distancing measures in place, as well as fears about the virus itself, are adding to the pressures of the current situation.”
“Covid-19 has dramatically highlighted the need for services like ours. Our fundraising has been reduced significantly due to cancelled events and activities over the past few months. We are incredibly grateful for supporters like the rock band Molly Karloff.”
To coincide with the news of the single, there’s also news that Molly Karloff fixed a recording deal with Off Yer Rocka Records who will release the band’s next two studio albums.
We described their ‘Supernaturalation’ EP in 2020 as “dopealicious” and added it was “supernaturamonic, with eggbeater riffs, knaggy vocals and an ever-growing sense of taut breeziness….”
Having already worked with the famed UK Record Producer/Mixer Romesh Dodangoda (Bullet for My Valentine, Funeral For A Friend, Bring Me The Horizon), on the remix of their previous single ‘Do It Again’, the band invited him back to remix ‘She Said’. A music video directed by Charlie Smith of Mind Art Visual, will coincide with the new single.
