Mark The Molochs down as the latest group bringing a promising new slice of the past to the LA scene. They’ve been described as “Black Lips meets The Byrds,” a rather fitting comparison.
Their jangly, garage tinted sound betrays a deep and nuanced love for Dylan, The Beatles, Velvet Underground, and the world that music brought to life. But The Molochs bring a contemporary and almost ode-like quality to the table that elevate their songs far beyond mere mimicry.
Theirs is a mission statement that promises to pull apart the past, rather than recreate it.
