South London’s The Melodic serve as a truncated snapshot of the world as a whole. The new Anti- Records signee creates a whimsical blend of various musical stylings and spits them out as something as fresh and sleek, but a nostalgic nod to their predecessors.
On My Way is a refreshing collection of songs that showcases the group’s simplistic take on Afro-pop inspired folk music. With their bright melodies and bouncy, bare-boned instrumentation The Melodic couldn’t be more aptly named. Percussion shuffles along as the group’s harmonies intertwine, coalescing into a soft yet poignant timbre that evokes shimmering memories of careless days.
The UK folk quartet will be embarking on their first US tour throughout the West Coast starting at the end of June.
The Melodic will be releasing their debut EP On My Way through Anti- on June 25, but you can stream the release in its entirety right here.
