Product Description


The title of Melys' second album may suggest that they're ready to go out in a blaze of glory but, really, this North Wales avant-pop foursome holds much more of a slow-burning appeal. Drawing in equal parts from the prim, understated dysfunction of Black Box Recorder, the foreboding atmospheric gloom of Portishead, and the sultry goth chic of Garbage, Kamikaze stands far removed from the glut of identikit Taff bands operating in the wake of Catatonia, Stereophonics and Manic Street Preachers. In the same way that Gorky's Zygotic Mynci so thoroughly redefined their reference points, Melys transcend such easy comparison. "Then There Was One" wraps its skeletal, lo-fi framework in elegant lounge-jazz organ, with vocalist Andrea Parker icily whispering a narrative of sorrow, heartbreak, and gestating bitterness from deep in the shadows. Kamikaze might not be hell-bent on revenge, but it certainly finds the victims plotting dark methods of reprisal. --Louis Pattison

This album is even better than I remember it. It cost me 1p. That is criminal. If you see it, buy it. Great band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Melys - They're cooly differeent 10 Oct 2000
By Stuart Eardley - Published on Amazon.com
The 2nd coming of Melys - straight from the mountains of Wales, in the UK. Paul and Andy, Gary & Big Rich, or DWCH, as he is known by the baby Bella. !!! The album is very different, nice programmed bass and synth lines, with Andy's ususal fine and sweet vocals.
My advice buy it, I can't stress how good it is enough !
