Today’s track of the day comes from Miss Vincent with their new single Melanie! The track premiered on Daniel P. Carter’s Radio 1 Rock Show and has a vintage feel!
Vocalist/guitarist Alex Marshall explains; “Melanie is a song that came together really quickly. I’ve always loved 50s rock’n’roll, and one of my favourite elements of that era is the immediacy of the songs, which is something we really wanted to come across on this track. For the video, I cast my mind around to stories of loss. One of my favourite films (and comics) is V for Vendetta, and the story of Valerie’s Letter is one of my favourite scenes of all time. It’s incredibly harrowing, and it’s always stuck with me. That was the basis for the premise behind the video – to take that narrative as a reference point, and to build our own from it. That was the basis for the premise behind the video – to take both those two narratives as a reference point, and to build our own from it. The narrative allows for a fair bit of viewer interpretation, which is cool. I know exactly how we see it, but I think it’s almost better that people can take their own meaning from it.”
