With just two tracks out there yet, Stockholm-based quartet Melby appear to be among the most interesting newcomers to the (extremely excessive) Swedish indie scene.
What’s interesting about Melby – apart from the quality of their songwriting and its execution in the studio – is how for the very start they avoid pigeonholing. Not only genre-wise. While Melby started with an English song “Human“, their intense new single “Regnet” is sung in Swedish.
“‘Regnet’ translates into ‘The Rain’. I would describe it as a vague and foggy story about some kind of mysterious nightly journey, starring two people trying really hard to stop hating each other”, Are Steinsholm, Melby’s guitarist told us. “But I don’t know if anyone else would agree that this is what it is about.”
