Canadian-based artist MELØ is hard to pin down into just one genre. Blending indie, pop, and electronic elements in a wholly original way, MELØ is an artist on the rise, exploding onto the scene with the single Mysteria that’s already racking up thousands of streams since its release late last year. Now, ahead of the release of his expected LP Songs From The Spirit Box, MELØ has released another dynamic single, this one titled Black Leather Fantasy.
Dark and mysterious but accessible at its core, Black Leather Fantasy is a great introduction to MELØ’s sound. The melody is rich and inviting, backed by a smartly produced chorus of synths and well-balanced percussion. There are hints of 80s elements throughout, blended deftly with modern pop and electronic elements that give us an inviting taste of MELØ’s future-pop genre label.
The music video elevates the mood this song creates to the next level. One part dangerous rock and roll, one part true sensuality, the black & red color theme that permeates the videography gives the video an edgy, entrancing atmosphere – the perfect complement to the already enthralling instrumentation.
MELØ is without a doubt establishing himself as an artist to watch. True creativity and ingenuity in all of the genres he blends together are rare to find, but MELØ’s instinct and artistic direction make for both compelling and consumable art – the best of both worlds.
