THE MOLOTOVS consist of Will Daunt (vocals / guitar), Henry Walton (guitar), Dom Millard (keyboards / guitar), Iain Lock (bass) and Guy Henderson (drums). Come To Grief is released as a download on Monday August 17th and is THE MOLOTOVS second single following on from the heartily acclaimed Flowers 7¬ù release on Cool For Cats late last year. A fruity leftfield pop sensation with brassy overtones, Comes To Grief comes with its very own Blur-esque piano lilt, as you may expect from an erudite, personable collective who, weirdly, sound nothing like a Small Wonder punk signing from 1978.
The Come To Grief launch party sees THE MOLOTOVS headline a special White Heat vs fierce panda night at the Lexington and sees the quintet bring together some of their very favouritist up and coming bands, all for a bargain five pound entrance fee.
The Come To Grief launch party also represents just one part of THE MOLOTOVS summer fun plans: already over the past few months they have toured with The Boxer Rebellion, played the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury, headlined the BMI sessions at Londons 229 venue and supported fierce panda mgmt stable mates The Ruling Class at their midsummer 100 Club show.
Better still, this download single release paves the way for the release of a splendid mini-album entitled And The Heads Did Roll on fierce panda on September 21st. Over the course of its six tracks we reckon And The Heads Will Roll will reveal THE MOLOTOVS to be a nifty, flirty modern day combo with a way with an exuberant tune and a frankly admirable way of bringing together the indiepoptastic attack of, say, The Maccabees with the twinklesome talents of, say, Vampire Weekend.
