Discovery: MelZebra

MelZebra is a British artist who’s sound is akin to a funkier Portishead.

By Graeme Smith

New track Summer of Love mixes together funky bass, psychedelic lyrics and chanting vocals, folding into a spacey chorus announcing the summer of love before a percussive breakdown. It’s impossible to listen to Summer of Love without nodding your head along in appreciation.

MelZebra is part of the proud tradition of deaf musicians hailing back to Beethoven. When it comes to music, hearing is over-rated. It’s clear she really feels the music and gives the listener something to feel too. Check out Summer of Love below.
