WL//WH Track Of The Day : MELLDROP “Perfect Lies”

Track Of The Day Melldrop

Melldrop is a Greek alternative / post-punk 5-piece based out of Athens, formed in 2015, on the brink to drop their self-released and self-titled debut full-length album next Friday. 

“Inspired by the alternative rock, post punk and electronic scenes, atmospheric pads, heavy basslines, guitar outbursts and electric vocals define the band’s distinctive sound”.

Dealing with misdirection, dominance, and secrecy, the new single “Perfect Lies” deploys tight propulsive drums coupled with deep resonant and pulsing bass lines that push the stiffling drive, overpowered by tension and confusion, relentlessly forward, fueled by subtle chugging and searing synths layered together with hypnotic guitar loops, sparse dense riffs, and lead by scruffy, rough, and urgent vocals weightened with fear, anxiety, and distress, as the guitars get sharper, the bass rises ominously, and the drums hit harder in a swirling and blistering finale.

A riveting and anthemic blend of 90’s alternative noisy guitars with driving dark post punk rhythms over dense electronic textures heightened by evocative vocals, just a few hours and we’ll have a clear picture…
