Track Of The Day :: Mellow Gang - Vendetta
Words: Linn Branson
Formed out of the late blues-psychedelia outfit Venice Trip (which Little Indie featured back in 2015), the newly invigorated East London four-piece are now Mellow Gang.
Having introduced themselves at The Great Escape, the psych-pop Gang dropped their debut offering earlier this year, ‘Lagoon (Solina)’ - recently featured on Made In Chelsea - and which is now followed by 'Vendetta'; both building momentum for their first EP 'Play', out on June 23.
"Ennio Morricone meets Tame Impala. Dope Lemon meets Beach House" is how they describe their sound, and 'Vendetta' certainly fits in there. Harriet Joseph supplies the tantalising, subtle vocal touch which nestles into a bed of synths, dreamwave guitars, and lush percussion. Very mellow, very moreish.
Mellow Gang play an EP release show on June 26 at Sebright Arms, London.
