Melville drop new album and video for "Televised"

Portland has been known to be a good place for indie rock. With a wealth of bands that fulfill those sonic requirements there are certain ones that stand out from the rest. Melville is one of those bands.

The quartet just release their debut full length The New Zero, which is conceptually based around how the apex of past events in life lead to new beginnings. For one of the first tracks shared from The New Zero, titled "Televised," Melville also released a music video to go with it.

It follows a Madonna-in-the-80s dressed character on somewhat of a quest of trying to figure out what's going on, it seems. Superimposed into some of the scenes are shots of Melville performing. At about three and a half minutes long, "Televised" is definitely an entertaining watch. 

Check it out below and stream The New Zero over at Melville's Bandcamp page.

Melville at The Hawthorne Theatre 11.9

Melville is a band with roots in americana and alt-country. Those roots clearly influenced their new album, however the current sound that is Melville is firmly filed under the "rock and roll" section at your local record store, in case you were hoping to pick up a copy of the band’s recently released EP, Maquette. With an anything but shallow rock sound, Melville mixes layered electric guitars in unique and often beautiful ways, taking a break from a driving song line up to bring moving instrumental rock moments like “Einleitung” to life. Ryan T. Jacobs is the front man and creator of this four piece force and it is clear he has worked hard to create a tight band and album with diversity and heart. See Melville tomorrow night at the Hawthorne Theatre with Minor Alps and The Upside Down. - Joy Pearson
