Succinct and shimmering, the band that is Melby, always seem to cast off the woes of the day and let’s you in on a secret. Whispering through the dark and patchy forest of living, the psyche tinged effervescence of ‘Common Sense’, delves deep into your cortex of ‘what ifs’ and ‘want nots’.
“During lockdown we started making music in a new way, recording demos at home and sending them back and forth to each other,” said the band. “Common sense was created like this, and we wanted to keep the strange and messy vibe of the original home recording. We are kind of modest people, so our version of weird and messy might not be the most weird and messy you’ve ever heard, but still. I think it’s got a bit of an edge to it?”
Matilda Wiezell’s daunting yet supple vocal admiration, kicks with approachable warmth, as the band pushes forth in a jam of sunshines and contrasts.
Weathering the harshness. Maybe even putting some cosmic smile to your thoughts.
The band consists of Wiezell, Are Engen Steinsholm (back-up vocals, guitar), David Jehrlander (bass) and Teo Jernkvist (drums).
