Premiere: Malick Koly lines up debut solo EP with the energetic new single ‘Eaux Rouges’

He may be primarily known as a drummer, not to mention come from a jazz background, but New Yorker Malick Koly isn’t especially interested in defining himself by his limits. His forthcoming debut solo EP is full of surprises – his most recent single ‘Heaven For Now’ pared things back for an acoustic song that could barely hold itself in check, while Koly’s latest offering leans heavily into grunge.

Featuring guest appearances from Vernon Reid and Ron Carter, the 5-track EP is produced by Steve Jordan, who’s worked with the likes of The Rolling Stones and the John Mayer Trio. You wouldn’t have expected him to be involved, and that’s the entire point of the project: subverting expectations. “Malick gave me a call and asked me if I would participate, and there it was. It’s got a lot of potential, it’s interesting & different. Refreshing, and that’s why I am a part of this” says Jordan.

We’re premiering that new grunge-influenced single, ‘Eaux Rouges’; Feel Bad Fest follows on Friday August 18th.
