As soon as you hear the first lyric, “I was on the other side, I will see you again“, you are engulfed in the emotional whirlpool that is Get A Rocket by Melpo Mene. The Swedish indie-pop artist had me at hello with this soaring song filled with luscious layers of shimmering instruments, atmospheric harmonies, airy vocals, and rich lyrics. It creates a euphoric experience with its warm, spacious soundscape and takes you away from yourself for a few precious minutes.
Melpo Mene (his artist name is inspired by Melpomene, one of the nine Mousai (Muses), the goddesses of music, song, and dance.) Melpo Mene was born in Stockholm and left his birthplace for Los Angeles in 2013. Melpo hasn’t released music for a while and we are thrilled to have him back with Get A Rocket which is the debut release from his forthcoming album.
