Melts are a newly formed psych rock band from Dublin. The band are made up of ex Ghost Estates, The Things, The Mighty Stef and The North Sea members and have only played a select number of shows in their short existence including supporting Fontaines D.C. for some dates on their Irish tour before heading to The Meadow in Wicklow to record their debut single with Irish Duo The Deaf Brothers (Mmoths, Cloud Castle Lake, Come On Live Long)
Melts launched their debut single 'Skyward' on the 20th of April to a packed house in Whelans. 'Skyward' came accompanied with B-side 'In Person'.
The band have recently been added to the bills of this summer’s Castlepalooza Festival and Electric Picnic. Melts will also head into Today FM late June to record a live session for The Paul McLoone Show.
