Portland, Oregon-based outfit Berried Alive have released their latest jam, “Melon-Choly” today. The genre-bending track arrives alongside the news that the husband and wife duo (Charles and Kaylie Caswell) will release their sixth album in 2022, which promises to push the boundaries of the band. Listen to “Melon-Choly” now below.
“These songs represent a lot of different styles and genres of music,” the band admits, addressing the explosion of sound found on the new record. “We personally listen to a lot of different styles of music, and we like different things about each style, so we’ve incorporated some elements of our favorite styles into one sound.”
“Melon-Choly,” reinforces the recurring theme of the record – that nothing is “im-popsicle if you refuse to cake your eye off the prize. You shrimply have to do whatever it takes to overcome the obstacles that may be in front of you.” Using introspective lyrics, the song is told from the perspective of an imaginary rockstar and zooms in on the grueling life of spending extended periods away from home and the emotional toll of surviving another grinding tour.
