English folk band, The Melodic released their debut 15 track album Effa Parade Nov. 5, some may say they created magic in the bedroom… that is a self recorded album in a soundproofed bedroom.
Every track is a hit! This Southern London band shares mellow yet totally groovy vibes.
The opening track was “On my Way”, it can be relatable to anyone who needs encouragement if they are doubting any life choice be it a major, career or love.
Through their sweet sound is a collaboration between two great friends whom behold a longstanding friendship between songwriters Huw Williams and Rudi Schmidt.
Composed of five members Huw Williams, Rudi Schmidt, John Naldrett, Lydia Samuels and James McCandless are the creators of Effa Parade.
The lyrics are astonishing and quite poetic, “ Dreams, dreams dreams of lead, tie me to my deep seabed but when I rise and take them there they are but dreams, dreams of air.”
The Observer described The Melodic, “ Incredible beautiful, with harmonies and rich instrumentation that make you want to dance and cry at the same time.”
The album ended perfectly with the outro “Effa Parade” which is similar to the New Orleans jazz.
If The Melodic are as good live as they show to be in Effa Parade then they are not the band to miss!
