Leeds-based quintet Melancholy Ray navigates through the tricky labyrinth of emotional ups and highs that comes with adult relationships in their new single “New Routine.” Lyrically, the track captures the complexities that arise during young adulthood when you meet someone impactful. Melodically, it’s a swaggering piece of pop peppered with garage rock spices that fizzles within your system. Enjoy:

Speaking of the track, the band commented: “‘New Routine’ is a coming-of-age song about meeting someone significant in young adulthood, whilst wrestling with the good and bad sides of what it all means. It was produced by our friend and Eades member Dan Clifford-Smith and is best heard loud with a drink in hand!”

Callum Fewell (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Aaron Bentley (lead guitar), Jack Guard (bass), Dan Clifford-Smith (drums), Gabe Holland (synth) are the humans behind Melancholy Ray who met at Leeds College of Music. Stay tuned for more releases from them this year.
