Band To Check Out: Melodime - 'Little Thing Called Love' (Single)
North Virginia alt rock outfit Melodime stream new single 'Little Thing Called Love'.
With its chirpy, tight arrangements that range between country and rock and it's rich warm vocals and lovely lyricism, Melodime's 'Little Thing Called Love' is the perfect antidote for a gloomy day. The chorus has a really familiar, friendly feeling about it which instantly forms a connection, and the warm arrangements have enough variation in them to keep the listener engaged throughout.
Not only are Melodime a band who are internationally making their mark with performances within and outside of the USA in Mexico, Canada, and Europe - they are a band on a mission to do good outside of their music, founding and running a charity, ‘Now I Play Along Too,’ which provides musical instruments and lessons to underprivileged children in the DC area, Florida and Haiti.
This is a band who spends a lot of their time out on tour, and if you're in the USA you can see an extensive list of their upcoming dates at the bottom of the page. Meanwhile, we will wait in hope for an announcement of UK dates so we can see them here in London!
