Both new albums are being released later this year via Coop Records and Nudie Records.
Drawing inspiration from influential bands such as Spiritualized, Moon Duo, and La Düsseldorf, Melody Fields create a sonic landscape that balances the classic foundation of psychedelic music with a fresh and modern approach. Their enchanting harmonies, swirling guitars, and ethereal textures immerse listeners in a kaleidoscopic world of sound, where the boundaries between reality and dreams blur.

Melody Fields‘ forthcoming albums 1901 and 1991 is a testament to their exploration of the neo-psychedelic realm. Building upon their signature sound, they will delve deeper into the realms of sonic experimentation, incorporating elements of electronic psychedelia and atmospheric soundscapes. The result is a mesmerizing fusion of vintage and contemporary influences, where retro-inspired melodies collide with innovative production techniques.
The band have described 1901 as “a rock album with psychedelic influences” which is wholly encompassed on ‘In Love’. With a killer bass line, atmospheric guitar licks and inspired use of percussion outside of the kit, ‘In Love’ really put the rock in psychedelic rock. Melody Fields said: “This track features infectious rhythms and catchy melodies that capture the raw power and rebellious spirit of rock’n’roll, inviting you to unleash your inner passion and let the music ignite your soul.”
Hailing from the vibrant musical enclave of Gothenburg, Sweden, Melody Fields is a band that seamlessly weaves elements of modern psychedelia, indie rock, and shoegaze into their captivating sonic tapestry. With a sound that pays homage to the pioneers of the psychedelic rock movement while forging a distinct path of their own, they have become a force to be reckoned with within the psychedelic music scene.
