The Prince Albert, Brighton
Hailing from the Northside, Dublin five-piece MELTS have fast emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the city’s era-defining scene. Brimming with hooks and searing intent, their forward- pushing brand of rock ‘n’ roll weds elements of psychedelia, post-punk and Krautrock to deliver a sound all their own.
Having won acclaim from the likes of PASTE, Stereogum, KEXP and BBC 6 Music since forming in late 2017, the Eoin Kenny-fronted band’s psych-leaning craft bears the imprint of everyone from Moon Duo and Beak> to Echo and the Bunnymen and Neu!, all while retaining their own singular force and lure. From the widescreen Motorik stomp of ‘Echoes’, the blissed-out ‘Seesaw’ and far beyond, this is slick, earworming music that effortlessly throws back and pushes forward in perfect synchronicity.
Off the back of sold-out shows alongside the likes of Rolling Blackouts CF, Warmduscher, TOY and Fontaines DC (who they support in Bristol and Southampton on November 30th & December 1st respectively) 2020 will see the release of the band’s highly-anticipated debut album.
“MELTS are ready to do just what their band name promises to your heart and brain.” - PASTE
"Distinctly brooding, yet striving to reach beyond that, seeking the vibrance in the outside world." - Stereogum
