Florence-based shoegaze/dreampop band We Melt Chocolate have unleashed their new single “No Meaning Man“, alongside an accompanying video.
The song is out now via Miracle Waves Records and is the first taste of their sophomore album, due out in October. Grab it here.
Born in 2014, We Melt Chocolate deliver lilting, noisy shoegaze music, aware of the My Bloody Valentine heritage but also with a nod to bands like Lush and Sugarcubes.
Following one self-released demo and EP, the band released their debut album (S/t) in 2019. Now We Melt Chocolate are back with “No Meaning Man”.
Commenting on the single, they share:
“After the sad period of the pandemic ended, we managed to carry on some projects that had remained incomplete before the forced stop. “No Meaning Man” is part of those and is perhaps the song that comes from the furthest away and which over time has undergone various metamorphoses before reaching its current form. The sound tries to find a point of encounter between noise moments and more ethereal moments, a contrast that has always fascinated us.
The lyrics of the song, written by our Vanessa, speak of disillusionment with others, with all those people who increasingly base their lives only on appearance, who perfectly conceal their most total emptiness, dress in attractive and pleasant clothes of false emotions but in reality have no empathy towards others. They don’t have the courage to be themselves and to exist, their lives based on lies and falsehood have no meaning.”
