THE MELTDOWN are a Melbourne-based band who specialise in Southern flavoured country soul and following on from their successful 2017 album, they’re preparing a new set for release this summer – ‘It’s A Long Road’ (above)
As is the way, they’ve just released a taster single – a loud, twangy-guitar-led, brassy, brash, tough ‘River’. It’s a powerful piece with a cool vocal from band leader Simon Burke leading up to a climatic, screaming sax solo from band co-founder Lachlan McLean.
The feel here is maybe The Alabama Shakes, Lee Fields and/or the whole Daptone thing! ‘River’ is available on all online platforms from May 6th, and preorders for ‘It’s A Long Road’ on LP, CD and digital open on from that date on Bandcamp.
