Austrian two-piece Molly make a sound bigger than the sum of their parts. They mix shoegaze and post-rock with multiple layers of guitar effects and powerful drumming. It’s quite an experience seeing them live too. Their new EP, Glimpse, is released as a limited edition clear vinyl 12”.

7/10 Robin Staff review, 07 December 2017

The highly unsearchable Molly will take a little time to defrost, but they’ll get there. Going at a slow pace and ascending understated climaxes, they make a kind of over-crystalline music that posits London Grammar as post-rock. The guitars are downright twinkling on “Glimpse”, finding the opaque decorative sound of Beach House, the band eventually building to a billowing avalanche of distortion that still sounds neatly and patiently organised before finally collapsing into all out doom metal.

It’s a U-turn and it’s earned; hearing them posit these totally different versions of themselves is jarring, but startling too. On “Time And Space” they resemble a fuzzy indie rock band from way back when (or, the ‘90s, if you will), their emotive chord churn recalling the mud-stuck wallowing of Dino Jr. But of course it changes: run through the epic gaze of post-rock, given wider scope and higher hopes, the rock action dies a death as the band run out the clock on a totally unexpected solo vocal lament.

Over just three songs it feels like they’re trying to broaden the potential of the bands that influenced them; Molly go from featherweight rock to stoner heaviness without ever considering it untoward, and it makes them all the more exciting to listen to.
