Pretty City got together in Melbourne in 2014, united by a love of bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and peak-era (‘90s, in other words) Smashing Pumpkins. Melt is one third of a triple-A single released earlier in the summer (along with Running Around and Second Hand Clothes). You can listen to them all on Soundcloud, which is a good thing, because they’re all pretty darned terrific.

Melt is my personal favourite of the three, for its nu-gaze smashed on the rocks textures. Textures you might find in the crater of an active supervolcano.

Everything just melts away
