Blazing horns, sugar sweet backing vocals and Simon Burke’s honey voice take us back to the days of Stax and Motown with a little Nashville for good measure. After the sweetness of the last single, the ballad ‘Colours In The Sky’, this is a more boisterous taste of their soon to be released self-titled debut album, due out April 2017.
The forthcoming album blends country, gospel and 60s soul with Burke’s enigmatic songwriting style and Lachlan McLean’s soulful horn arrangements. The result is a unique take on Australian soul music and a record full of life, energy and deeply felt storytelling. With the bloodlines of southern soul; the space, the groove, the horns, and a dash of traditional country songwriting, The Meltdown have grown into something that is their own.
