Night Slugs head honcho Bok Bok joins forces with vocalist Kelela for this catchy number titled Melba’s Call with an equally enticing video.
Both Bok Bok and his record label Night Slugs (co-run with L-Vis 1990) have pioneered this synth heavy, modernist take on ’80s Synth Wave mashed together with modern Grime for some time now, cutting a very unique niche of their own in today’s musical landscape. This track features those recognisable sounds and style along with a catchy vocal that almost has pop credibility.
The video appears to be completely digitally rendered, much like a lot of the Night Slugs artwork and if this is the case then it’s beyond impressive. Art Direction comes from Sushon.org (Bok Bok) and production from the talented Nic Hamilton.
