Melt (Out June 7)

Meanjin-based, female-led powerhouse Menajerie sways and sighs to the sensual sounds of their new single ‘Melt’, out June 7. This neo-soul slow jam is sweet like honey and just as flavourful.

Bringing their iconic sultry charm, the three frontwomen use their bewitching skills to ensnare music to their will. Together, they brew up truly irresistible melodies, as they are backed up by tantalizing rhythms and tones from the band.

Having cast their spell in 2023 with their debut EP ‘Selective Deafness’, Menajerie was embraced with overwhelming support and garnered a nomination at the 2024 Queensland Music Awards in the Soul/ Funk/ R&B category. Now, with the furnace still burning hot, they are ready to unveil their latest single ‘Melt’.

Forging something raw and seductive, ‘Melt’ is a brazen and impassioned love song, that typifies that fluttering heartbeat, those butterflies in the stomach, and the thirst for someone’s powerful intimacy. Set against the alluring backdrop of a neo-soul groove, the romantic lyrics combine with funky wah guitar, soaring synths and slinky rhythms.

This song reflects the blooming warmth of an early romance, hinting at the uncertainty of what’s to come, while still remaining passionate, sweet and optimistic. Gracie Mack says: 

“Melt is about that kind of love that turns your insides to liquid gold. I wrote the song in the early stages of a romance that felt really healing and special. Melt kinda feels to me like a mushy love song parading as a neo-soul groover. It’s enchanting, joyous and a bit sexy”.

This song courts and challenges the familiar, both in the way they push the boundaries of soul and in the lyrical narrative of love’s twists and turns. The melody works in tandem with impassioned lyrics to follow the strange path of falling in love, where everything feels familiar and brand new.

Let the knees be weak, let the heart tremble, and gaze into the endearing eyes of a romantic partner when Menajerie‘s ‘Melt’ releases June 7.
