Melidoca, Melody and Me – Runaway
Melidoca, Melody and Me – Diamonds On The Soles of Her Shoes
Thanks to the big sister for playing this in the car on our 4 and a half hour drive home yesterday. Such a gorgeous flow to this song which is carried off with an impromptu, unassuming grace. As I’ve said many a time before I’m a sucker for duets especially if they have the whole boy-girl dynamic going on but mix that in with the scatter-slap drums, offbeat acoustics and skipping lead guitars (which are too pretty to be called “riffing”) and I have a lot of ticked boxes on my hands. I feel like each member of this band possesses genuine talent, not just in terms of technical ability but also in terms of musical instinct for being a part of a song and creating a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Melody and melodica in abundance and you can count Me in.
Melodica, Melody, and Me are soon to fly away on tour of churches across the UK with Bombay Bicycle Club just as they release their next single Piece Me Back Together via Everybody’s Stalking. Get hold of the cover for free on their myspace
