The Melodic Announce North American Tour Dates

English afro-folk-pop ensemble, The Melodic, have just announced an upcoming series of North American live dates throughout the month of January. The young ensemble will be touring with English musician and actor, Johnny Flynn.

The Melodic, who hail from the vibrant South London melting pot of Brixton, will be performing in support of their new album Effra Parade. AllMusic.com said of the record “The Melodic don't sound much like anyone else in British pop, and their individuality, imagination, and vision already make them something special" while Electronic Musician offered “these international instruments are what give Effra Parade its very British folk-pop flavor. For a band in their early 20s, the Melodic’s debut, Effra Parade, sounds aged and knowing."
