Melt Dunes - Flesh EP

Portsmouth psychedelic warlords Melt Dunes have been rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the fiercest live bands the U.K has to offer, warping the minds and bodies of anyone who comes into orbit and with only two singles released to date on both Strong Island Recordings and Fuzz Club, Melt Dunes’ are set to unleash their debut EP the ‘Flesh EP’ 16 March. 

Emerging with the delirium of ‘What’s Your Name?’; a rich and densely guitar-driven track, somewhat reminiscent of Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd to ‘Flesh’, a bludgeoning, motorik throb that throws a nod the kraut stylings of Can and Neu!. Flesh’s cacophonous thrash of an ending leaves little time to prepare for the eerily malevolent ‘Epicaricacy’; a fitting soundtrack to a paranoid stumble through an abandoned carnival. Following this with the jagged simplicity of the bleak and hypnotic ‘Grotesque’, the quintet bring you an EP that combines elements of the gloom-psych shimmer of The Black Angels with the raucous aggression of The Stooges to sculpt a sound that is thoroughly unnerving . With their debut EP, Melt Dunes are certainly going to drag us all into the darkest depths of their psychedelic, fuzz-fueled realm.
