Miss Vincent kickstart a new chapter, unveiling their vintage-tinged new single 'Melanie'. Taking their backbone of dark punk to new heights with soaring, romantic melodies, combined with a cinematic and retro visual dealing with loss and grief, the track is a statement of intent for further things to come.
"Melanie is a song that came together really quickly” explains vocalist and guitarist Alex Marshall, ““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. 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."
