Formed in 2014 from the remnants of other bands who shared the same Oxfordshire rehearsal studios, Molly Karloff started life as ‘Conspiracy of Ravens’, after bassist Tom joined forces with songwriter and guitarist, Simon. The band immediately started writing material for their debut EP which was recorded live at Cream Studios in London, with producer Richard Aitken. Drawing upon a wide range of influences, the raw, hook-laden guitars were married with the bass-line grooves to produce a very unique sound that lies somewhere between Clutch, Rage Against The Machine & Alice In Chains.
A period of turmoil then ensued as disagreements between band members resulted in a succession of personnel changes, and the eventual temporary disbandment of the band. After a hiatus, Tom & Simon eventually put the band back together over a chance meeting in a Maplin store.
With a change of personnel, and new motivation as the band clicked together, they changed the name of the band to Molly Karloff to mark the beginning of a new era. With a wealth of new material and fresh new energy, the band release their debut EP, 'Dancing For Money' in September 2018 to a chorus of approval and embark upon a heavy campaign of live shows in support.
Described as a ‘no-holds-barred sucker punch!’ by Down The Front Media, the band rapidly attracted attention on their local live circuit, quickly headlining both The Bullingdon & The Wheatsheaf in Oxford as promoters took note of the overwhelmingly rapturous response from audiences. Building on their local popularity, the band began to play outside of their local area culminating in their debut live appearance in London only a couple of months after their debut show. The band continue to play live and write more material for further recording releases in 2019.
