In preparation for its recently announced album, Meltt shared an emotionally charged single, “Your Melody.”
The band is known for its distorted guitars, strong synths and epic vocals. A bit softer than Meltt’s usual work, “Your Melody” is a welcomed addition to the group’s discography, fitting in perfectly. Of course, the song still features the stunning instrumentals Meltt is known for, with the funky guitar shining.
“Your Melody” is a deeply personal song. It serves as a tribute to bassist Ian Winkler’s father, who battled ALS. He shared:
“My dad was in the late stages of his fight with ALS, so it was a very intense time for me. My grandma had also recently died. We were going through her old photo albums, and there was one picture of my dad as a kid. I saw the picture and where he was in the present like, ‘Holy shit, this was his destiny’. I was interested in determinism and physics from a philosophical perspective. Since all of time just exists, we’re playing through it like a song. That’s where ‘Your Melody’ came from. I saw my dad’s song from beginning to end in the picture. The song was born out of a lot of fear, grief, and anger.”
“Your Melody” will be featured on Meltt’s album “Eternal Embers.” The album, set to drop on Sept. 22, will also feature “Soak My Head,” “Do You Ever Wonder?” and songs from the EP “Another Quiet Sunday.”
The Vancouver-based band dropped its first EP — “Visions” — in 2017. Since then, they released the full-length album, “Swim Slowly.” As the group continued to release music, it became known for creating a cohesive world of alternative rock and psychedelic.
Over the pandemic, the band began writing what would eventually become “Eternal Embers.” Spending a month in a remote cabin, the group recorded the LP. The first five tracks can be heard on the “Another Quiet Sunday” EP.
