Peckham newcomer Mellah released his debut single ‘Round’ via Lucky Number at the end of last month, and it proved an extremely exciting first impression.
The track now has an accompanying video, and it’s a pretty intense trip, set both in the pubs and a murky forest (an iconic duo if we ever saw one).
Talking about the clip, Liam Ramsden says: “The video is in part a literal interpretation of an encounter I had with an ex-mod soldier in a pub in Warrington, which later became my motivation for the song. He was a pretty unhinged guy who had decided that what I needed was a stint in the British army to set me straight.
“He spent the evening making sure I knew about his hunch. It is also in part influenced by a book called ‘owning your own shadow’ by Robert Johnson (not the one who sold his soul to the devil). The White lady embodies the darker side of the soldier’s self, the part of himself that he cannot face and so torments him.”
The single is taken from his upcoming EP ‘Liminality’, out on 12th May. He’s set to play a release show at Peckham’s Montague Arms on the 16th of the month.
