CIVILIANA has completed a three-part musical story arc with the release of “Melt” – its newest digital single and music video. Watch here
Released on September 3rd, “Melt” is the final piece of a 2019 sonic trilogy – which began with the band’s previous 2019 singles “Carry a Light” and “Void” – that explores the emotions of a failed relationship and the introspection and self-destruction that follow. “Melt” is a raw and sexy track that delves into the hunger for raw intimacy that comes when one’s soul has been fully revitalized.
Calen Trentini, the band’s lead vocalist and drummer says, “Since our teenage years, we have always been intrigued by the unique textures and sounds of electronic music in our favorite tracks. ‘Melt’ was inspired in part by the film ‘Drive’, which captivated us with its electronic-heavy soundtrack. ‘Melt’ shows our influence and love of electronic music while also incorporating our alternative rock roots with tight instrumentals to lock the listener into a continual groove.”
Like the band’s last two singles (“Carry a Light” and “Void”), “Melt” was developed organically by Trentini and his bandmates Daniel Ponich, Adam Wilson, and Spencer Daley before it went to the award-winning producing team of Matt Di Pomponio and Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, Said The Whale, Sophia Danai) of Echoplant.
The release of “Melt” completes the four-piece band’s ambitious entrance into the alt-rock arena, an accomplishment made even more enjoyable by the shared nostalgia of CIVILIANA’s members who first met as teenaged friends in Kelowna, British Columbia. With initial planning already underway to record more music, the band is ready to build on its 2019 introduction by putting its new ideas towards an impactful 2020.
