Discovery: Mela

Mela is a half-Italian, half-English electro pop artist residing in South London. Her new track Stereo is a nostalgia-tinged throwback to ’80s disco.

By Graeme Smith

Silky vocals meet experimental synth melodies in Stereo. Mela has so perfectly captured the sound that you could easily close your eyes and imagine yourself in disco circa 1982. Since that was a little before my time, I’m reminded on the second wave of synth-laded electro pop in the ’00s with the likes of Gossip, CSS and Hot Chip.

Whatever era you grew up in, you can’t argue that Stereo is a certified floor-filler. Check it out on Spotify and have a boogie – wherever you are!
