MalpasWe’re definitely not the only ones who expect great things from Malpas, as in the recent months they have toured the country with Mr. Hudson and supported Ok Go at Birmingham’s O2 Academy.

Referred to by the Fly as having ‘the power of a traction engine’ and by the Music Fix as ‘swooping and poetic folk kissed with electronica’, Malpas were formed in Kings Heath, Birmingham in 2009. Ali M. Forbes teamed his vocals and various old instruments bought on eBay with Jim Macaulay’s samples and drum kit and they joined forces with instrumentalists Tim Hancock, Andy Savours, Stu Macaulay and Danielle Perry.

Soon they’ll be releasing their first single, but true to their loyal local following they’re still making time to draw crowds into the pubs of Moseley.
