Stockholm quartet Melby keeps things chaotically harmonious in their new single “Common Sense,” a psychedelic pop piece with playful rhythmic twists where Melby swirls you into their kaleidoscopic vortex. There is a sense of carefree distortion to it where the quartet brings raw messy vibes that is strangely appealing. Check it out:
Speaking of the inspiration behind the track, Melby shared: “During lockdown we started making music in a new way, recording demos at home and sending them back and forth to each other. ‘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?”
Melby is Matilda Wiezell (vocals), Are Engen Steinsholm (guitar), David Jehrlander (bass) and Teo Jernkvist (drums) who decided to form a band while living together in Stockholm. For “Common Sense,” the band teamed up with producer Alexander Eldefors.
