Single: Meagre Martin – Malcolm

‘You start to drown so pull me out’

Berlin-based indie project Meagre Martin tread lines between grunge and quirky alt pop on their new single ‘Malcolm’ (yes, it is an ode to the greatest sitcom of all time). It hangs heavy in the air, just the right amount of laboured, lingering tension. There is an intangible sense of fight in the crunching guitars and fed up vocals that is hard to resist.

From the band – ‘We grew up watching Malcolm in the Middle; something about it has always felt like home. The financial instability the parents face feels very familiar, yet the vibrancy they portray resonates. Malcolm’s struggle to climb out of generational trauma and poverty is relatable.’
