Incoming: Melt Dunes' Second Single is the Gnostic Nightmare You've Been Waiting For

You may well have heard of Melt Dunes if you keep up with Vapour Trail Blog. It’s fair to say we’re big fans of the outfit originally from Southampton and now based just down the road in Portsmouth who make some of the most cerebral sounding psychedelic-rock out there.

The quintet have just dropped their newest single ‘Grotesque’ on Strong Island Recordings, the follow up to ‘Flesh’ which featured on our best tracks of 2017 so far list a couple of months back. Their newest offering, ‘Grotesque’ is just over 4 minutes of bewitching, malevolent psychedelia that could well be the soundtrack to your Halloween and forthcoming gloomy, drizzly winter evenings.
