Mallory Knox - Asymmetry Cover

Could 'Asymmetry' be the album that truly launches Mallory Knox on the world stage? Quite possibly.

Atriumph of substance and style, Mallory Knox’s second full-length picks up exactly where ‘Signals’ left off. Indeed, ‘Asymmetry’ proves as rich and heartfelt as anything the Cambridgeshire five-piece have produced, laced with ingenious vocal interplay and moments of genuine audacity; particularly throughout mini-epic ‘She Took Him To The Lake’ and festival anthem-in-waiting, ‘Dying To Survive’. From ‘Ghost In The Mirror’ to the breathtaking finale of ‘Dare You’, these songs cements MK’s place on the top tier of British rock, at least when you set aside the odd dash of déjà vu (but who could blame them for a couple of callbacks to ‘Signals’?). Just watch ’em go.
