Melody Connor: Blue Vacation

Germany's Melody Connor whose work we've recently enjoyed through the garage pop duo, Jettes, takes his solo project toward a bit of a darker territory, and unveils Blue Vacation, the first in a series of upcoming new songs.

"Blue Vacation is nostalgia-driven three-chord song, that I wrote in Seattle's Capitol Hill during a year of traveling and searching," Connor reveals. "It took me forever to finally let go of it, but I'm more than happy it finds its own way from here on."

Citing influence from the likes of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Elliot Smith and Nada Surf, the new song feels as gritty as much as it is accessible and easy to take in, while its beaming surf pop qualities stand out a mile and make for an overall genre bending effort that balances between slacker rock, shoegaze and guitar-laden indie pop. Adding to the overarching wistfulness, the song's contemplative lyrics make the keenest juxtaposition to the balmy Californian mood, even though Connor's new work was mainly conceived in the middle of the Pacific-Northwest.
