Molotovs Promise a Heady Cocktail
Crafty London melody merchants The Molotovs have announced details of their debut mini album And The Heads Did Roll released through Fierce Panda on the 5th October 2009. The album will be preceded by the single Come To Grief on the 17th August.
The five members of The Molotovs follow the eloquent home grown pop lineage that runs from The Kinks to the Mystery Jets and combine it with their own love of poetry and fable, carving a sound that is jittery and yet oddly atmospheric. They write songs, which are both rousing and melancholic.
And The Heads Did Roll equates to twenty minutes worth of intelligent, uplifting pop noise. Track-lisiting for is as follows:
1. Come To Grief
2. In Coversation
3. Citys Guest
5. Far Cry From Love
6. One Up On Me
