Listen To The Melancholies' Self-Titled Debut EP

Annabel Kean / Tuesday 19th October, 2021 3:07PM

Like a fine wine or Highland scotch, shoegaze fiends The Melancholies have waited for the perfect moment to bottle their debut EP, dropping progress reports here and there since debut single 'Cute Aggression' hit the airwaves in 2018. Now freshly corked and primed for imbibing, the Ōtepoti via Orewa duo share all four tracks on The Melancholies, a collection of devilishly dark synth-pop — mixed, mastered and co-produced by Aaron Short (The Naked And Famous). Bandmates Holly Coogan and Tom Young (Leisure) sing in distorted unison throughout the EP, draped across the spacey percussion of newly released ethereal electronic opener 'Love Herself' and dark, driving depths of 'Cool Magic's stripped-back bass and drums. The Melancholies are bringing the moody Halloween energy that October desperately needs, let their debut collection spookify your day...

'The Melancholies' debut EP is out now via major streaming services.
