Mellah – ‘Paseo’ – A haunting shift in sound and excellent return from Peckham’s best.

From their forthcoming EP ‘Middle England’, Peckham’s Mellah get dark on new release ‘Paseo’.

South London’s Liam Ramsden aka Mellah, released the excellent ‘Liminality‘ EP in May of last year through London indie label Lucky Number. The five tracks in question took the listener on a journey of atmospheric dream-pop, tangled tales of homelessness, war and personal grief featured alongside luscious guitarplay and drifting saxophone.

Ahead of the release of the EP ‘Middle England‘ out on Columbia Records, Mellah have shared ‘Paseo’. The track displays a shift in motion as the jangly guitars and sugar-sweet lyricism is replaced by a deeply haunting and direct melodic beast. The trademark vocal delivery still hits hard, but this time Liam Ramsden seems at odds with his surroundings as lyrically he delves into all which is wrong with our modern existence. As with all of the most important artists we hold dear today, Mellah uproot and shift their vision to stand as one of the most promising bands London has to offer.
