Interview: Melic – Brothers Mark and Steve

Aug 8, 2013 by

Our interview with Mark and Steve from Melic came on the day of their first debut album release called An Hour to Anywhere. We were honored to have them on this special day, and they even brought with them a few songs from the album. We also dug into how the band writes their songs, where this strange fusion of music came together, and why there’s almost always a low, satisfying rumble at the end of their songs. I even worked in my twist on James Lipton’s end-of-interview questions again and you’ll hear some strange New Zealand words in there!

Melic┬áhave been around for a little while, have released an EP, toured their home country of New Zealand as well as the UK, and in 2012 won “Best Overall Band” at the UK Unsigned Awards. Their latest album, An Hour to Anywhere, was recorded at Steve Honest’s Hackney Road Studios who we know and love from his involvement with the now-defunct Recharged Radio’s live-on-air sessions broadcasted from that same studio.

Melic rockin’ the crowds’ socks off as they usually do live.

I want to thank both Mark and Steve for joining us, as well as our faithful producer Claire, David and Neil over at Beatnik Geek Records for being such a great supporter of our show, and to all of you for listening.
