The Melodics - Donkey Kong Suicide

The Melodics - Donkey Kong Suicide
The Melodics are a 5 piece live revivalist hip-hop act, with synth heavy rock grooves and new-wave rap flavours. Think David Bowie meets Kanye West or Joy Division meets Santogold... minus the eye-patch, ego, depression and gold leggings. Following the release of their celebrated debut album, '4D' in 2009, their single 'Take Me Away' quickly become a Triple J favourite. Now The Melodics are back with ‘Paint Me Gold’. Bringing together a creative, energetic and original mix up of electro-rock and Indie Hip-Hop, the new offering see’s The Melodics team up with renowned producers; Jan Skubiszewski (Jackson Jackson, Phrase), Russell Fawcus (The Temper Trap, The Kooks) and Forrester Savell (Karnivool, The Butterfly Effect). The idea - Fuck off an album, write 4 singles, take them to a bunch of diverse and innovative producers, put them on a disk and call it an EP. The result - Imagine if INXS replaced Michael Hutchence with Busta Rhymes instead of some whack reality TV douche.

About this track...

'Donkey Kong Suicide' was conceptualised when Jeremedy was playing Donkey Kong on an 80's arcade console in Byron Bay. Bored of the game, he jumped off his platform to kill himself. Enjoying the metaphor Jeremedy turned to the boys “Oi fockers! We're gonna write a tune called Donkey Kong Suicide!”
