What do you get when you bring ex-members of Ghost Estates, The Things, The Mighty Stef and The North Sea? The answer, Melts.
Melts are a freshly formed psych-leaning rock band from Dublin, comprised of members from some of the finest bands to emerge from the Capital in the last decade. With just a few select number of shows in their short existence they set off for the Meadow in Wicklow to record their debut single with Irish duo The Deaf Brothers. The result is ‘Skyward’, the band’s first single, is propelled by a hypnotically repetitive post-punk guitar and synth line flux. It is a tune that doesn’t mess about, it means business with its relentless, powerful drive and meaty, bassline groove chugging ever onward, burrowing inside inside your consciousness. As far as opening introductions go, they don’t come much bigger or better than this.
Listen to ‘Skyward’ below now.
