Their debut album The Uglyside of Love is out now on Invada.

"this sublime debut recalls the moment when trip-hop was a vital - unblemished force.. tapping '60s psych and '70s Brit-rock as much as dub, Two Tone and breeze-block's jaw dropping" Mojo 4stars

"a magpie melange of samples, film extracts and highly original sculptured into tracks ranging from Fading World's Massive Attack-meets-dupstep forboding to the pastrol, Zombies-esque psychadelia of Another Sun. Outsider pop that's unlikely to remain out in the cold for long." Q 4stars

"Malakai's mix of wit, musical darling and apocalyptic imagery is like locking yourself into the set of The Prisoner with Brian Jones, Sly Stone and Dennis Hopper. Terrifyingly fun." NME 8/10
