The Meltdown will bring a blend of Stax and Motown with a healthy dose of the Nashville songwriting tradition to their first performance at Memo Music Hall.
Freshly off the back of supporting The Cat Empire on their European tour, The Meltdown stay true to the story and keep your attention on the soaring voice of Simon Burke. He’s soul, but He’s something else indefinable; like you’ve heard him before but don’t know where. The rhythm section create a hypnotic spacious groove to lean upon and the horns gracefully tie it all together. Songs to move your heart and your feet as echoes of Memphis soul resonate.
Having built their sound off the back of mesmerising and uplifting live performances, they were signed to Melbourne label Hopestreet Recordings in 2015 and released ‘Better Days’ as a 45 soon after.
