Sea Bed’s influences lend as much to New Order, Churches, Cocteau Twins, Lykke Li as they do to the likes of Detroit Techno, with the pair transforming the sound of their icons into something refreshingly modern.
Drawing support from BBC Radio 1 in the UK has culminated in an invite to perform at their curated ‘Introducing' stage at Glastonbury 2016. Since performing at the festival, the band have been picked as one of 'Saturdays Highlights' by the BBC, which has led to a confirmed Radio 1 playlist inclusion at the end of July. The band’s debut EP ‘Moving Ghosts’, built a strong base of supporters at key online sites - HillyDilly, Clash, Wonderland as well as numerous Hype Machine contributors. Live, the band have performed at Ibiza’s influential, International Music Summit and have other upcoming festivals in summer 2016.
The follow up EP ‘The Art Of Living’ is out October 2016. First track ‘Young’ landed a 405 Premiere and was added to ‘New Music Friday’ on Spotify, amongst several other leading playlists.
For fans of experimental maestros like Gang Gang Dance and Micachu, Meltybrains? push the envelope by being batshit. At a time when most bands are afraid to take any risks, Meltybrains? take them laughing, and their unswerving dedication to their craft (despite their whacky flippancy) is evinced in the beaming praise they’ve received for their live show-cum-spectacle from outlets such as Boiler Room, Clash, Pigeons & Planes and The Irish Times to name a few.
With more material to come by the end of the year, Meltybrains? are firm contenders for the most intriguing prospect the British counter culture has had in donkey’s years. They’re the antithesis to the spick and span polish and carefully manufactured image of most groups. Ultimately, they’re explorers, pushing to the furthest reaches of music and entertainment to report back that there’s yet more to be discovered.
