Black Holes

Album: Mallory Knox (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • "Black Holes" was released as Mallory Knox' first single as a four-piece, following vocalist Mikey Chapman's departure from the band. The song finds bassist Sam Douglas step up to vocal duties.

    He said: "I think it shows a completely different side to my voice. In taking on lead vocals, that was something I wanted to be able to show from the get go. It's a song we've played at rehearsal for a while and we're all really excited about integrating it into the set."
  • Douglas said regarding the song's lyrical content:

    "It's all too easy in this day and age to post every single thought we have online, and at times too much can be said. Everybody seems to be so quick to have an opinion on something, which they often know nothing about, and I struggle to defend how much negativity is spouted online.

    "We really wanted to make sure that emotion was captured in the recording and our producer Adrian Bushby really brought out the bare bones of the song in the best way. It's a conscious effort to go back to basics. We really want the listener to be able to hear every part being played and I feel we've achieved that."
