Meljoann - I Quit (Boy Scout Audio) 

Release Date: 23rd July 2021

If you're going to whack 'Anti-Capitalist Balladry' in the subject line of an email then I am going to listen, OK? Thankfully, Ireland's Meljoann is well worth listening to on the basis of forthcoming single 'I Quit'. A Whitney Houston-esque slow jam is twisted to become a song about literally giving up the day job which shows off superb vocals and a razor sharp whit coming out of twin barrels. The synths swirl and and there's a guitar solo coming straight out of an 80s love scene which all adds to the sensory overload - particularly when you watch the video which is more of a performance art piece on the suffocation of office work.
