UK Artist of the Week: Melotone

This week we’re heading to the West of England to meet Melotone, a psych-jazz quartet who are creating wonderfully woozy tunes.

The band’s latest release “Entre Ondas” combines sixties psychedelia with jazz-infused Tropicalia and Bossa nova soundscapes creating something truly mesmerising. Lead singer Alec Madeley is half-Brazilian, which has clearly influenced the rest of the band’s musical motives. “Entre Ondas” allows us to travel away from these cold winter mornings to warm, sultry afternoons—and we can’t get enough.

Talking about the single, Alec explains, “’Entre Ondas’ is a landmark song for me because it is the first of ours that truly captures our love of sixties and seventies Brazilian music. During the pandemic, I was listening to a lot of Caetano Veloso, Os Novos Baianos, and Gal Costa, which I think inspired me to write something in Portuguese, almost as a homage to the greats I had been obsessing over.”

“Entre Ondas” is in stores now via Think Twice Records, an arm of Last Man Music Group.
