Everybody who took even a slight listen to The Meltdown's releases of the last years, like Colours In The Sky or Better Days, knows what a shaking in contemporary soul's foundation a first full-length album indicates.
The Australian band's new selftitled record starts off with a warm soul hymn in "Darkness Into Light". The group's country soul approach lends elements from various genres and soul eras but always stays humble and maybe a bit less flashy than the coverart might suggest. It is about traditional elements like steady grooves, dynamic horns and great vocals which provide the listener with a rush of positive soul vibes.
