With her debut album Cornucopia out on March 1st via Extreme Music, Malory has dropped another single in the form of “Blue Umbrella”. It follows “Last To Die” which dazzled the ears with it’s Lorde-esque harmonies and sombre piano chords, while the new single looks to throw a bit of edge to Malory’s sound.
Lyricism of rain clouds and sadness, “Blue Umbrella” floods the airwaves with an emotive theme that’s bolstered wonderfully with an instrumental that sounds straight from the 80s. The electronic pulse of the synthesiser adds flare to a chorus that blooms beautifully with layered harmonies and a rhythm that’s hard to ignore. The verses cut a stark contrast, keeping layers to a minimum to help ramp up the emotion. It’s a beautifully crafted listen and Malory proves that blue umbrellas are not just to be saved for a rainy day.
