ATHENS, Greece (Top40 Charts) Athens, Greece's guitar-pop four-piece Melt Mountain will release their full-length debut album "Superfetish" on May 29 via Inner Ear. The record follows their acclaimed self-titled four-song EP (released January 2014 on Inner Ear) which earned them praise from the likes of NME, Indieshuffle and more. "Fascinating Things" is the lead single.
Frontman Dimitris Apostolakidis:
""Fascinating Things" could be considered the essential base of the "Superfetish" idea, both musically and lyrically. This idea involves strong music themes that evolve and change in a dynamic, expressive way and words that try to describe detachment, inner conflicts, obsessions and disbeliefs."
Melt Mountain is one's inner most angst, a gut feeling of a frivolous daily routine, a hopeless bus ride that's only meant to show you how things may seem through a window as you swiftly pass by, with no intention of getting off. This has been the case since 2014 when they released their self-titled EP, carving up a musical landscape in a whimsical sense while also setting up intricate foundations with a narrative that most people can relate to.
"Superfetish" has explored more of the depths that the band was willing to go to. Lyrically it is very much influenced by urban culture, life and conduct, as complex and unforgiving as it gets. It navigates the recluse mind and the misunderstood personality. At the same time their music joins the dots between the abstract thought process captured in words with the same riffing mountain melting power that has come to define them.
The album was written and produced by the band, engineered by John Vulgaris (Bazooka's drummer) and most of it was recorded live in four days at Urban Studios (Athens) in February 2016. . All the artwork illustrations were created by Never Brush My Teeth.
