Mel Blue makes heartache sound groovy on their latest single “Wake Up Call.” Inspired by funk and long-distance relationships, the six-piece Sydney band explores their own silver lining in this minimalist yet fluorescent new track.
Using producer/songwriter Oscar Sharah’s voice as an instrument that harmonizes with itself, the ensemble’s lyrics are a defining aspect of “Wake Up Call.” Despite its melancholic prose, the melodies are upbeat and effortlessly cool. Layered with airy guitar riffs and stimulating synths, each chord is as pleasant as the next. A cocktail of organic instruments and danceable electronic rhythms, “Wake Up Call” is noticeably vibrant.
