about

Malibu Hot Flush is a serendipitous collaboration between singer and guitarist Luigi Tiberio and modular artist
Tim Bleasdale. They’re a well-connected pair, having recorded their debut, self titled album (out March 2023 on
vinyl via Neon Tetra Records) with Mogwai’s producer, Tony Doogan at Glasgow’s Castle of Doom Studios.
Belle & Sebastian’s Chris Geddes – a long time friend of the band - helped write and form a handful of songs
from the forthcoming album.
Despite having both been part of different previous projects, here they are now with their first foray into the
commercial music scene together, with the explosive, 80’s inspired new single ‘Too Much’.
Tiberio explains, “On ‘Too Much’, we originally started playing around this synth riff that made me think of the 70s
electronica a la Giorgo Morodor style with those fat square wave tones in your face sort of sound.”
“Musically, we’re trying to pick out the discordant elements of the melody and build those the texture of those,
getting more aggressive as the song spins on. It’s almost like the call and response you’d get on a blues track, I
think this comes from doing everything live”, Bleasdale adds.
At the crux of it, Malibu Hot Flush’s sound haphazardly fuses elements of electronic post-punk, new wave, Euro
disco, indie, techno and industrial genres. All of which you’ll detect on this track. And it’s one that’s been
executed with the express intention of wanting to make people throw themselves around the room and just let
loose.
The lyrics for most of MHF’s songs surround mental health; “It is quite cliché, but I’ve had a lot of reflection
around the mental health of musicians in a post pandemic world. The internal dialogue happens between our
main character and his mind, almost like heated conversation with his consciousness”, Tiberio states.

lyrics

I want to live until the end
I want to play just with my bad
There is not enough to lie down

We’re just too much to disappear
Too much noise around to hear
There is not enough to lie down

You, wasn’t you to drag me through
Was the lie you said to do
You are not real enough to lay down

Why, you want to live until the end
Because your thoughts have brought a scent
You are not real enough to lay down
I want to live until the end
I want to play just with my bad
There is not enough to lie down

We’re just too young to disappear
Too much noise around to hear
There is not enough to lie down

Woah, Na na na na na na na na oh oh
Na na na na na na na na oh oh
Na na na na na na na na
