Australia’s Dune Rats have released their new single, “Melted Into Two“, the third single from their forthcoming album, Real Rare Whale. The first song that the band wrote for the new album, “Melted Into Two” was written with their good mate, Shane Parsons from DZ Deathrays and serves as their take on a love song.
“This song is the closest thing to a love song we’ve written,” the Dunies confessed. “It grew from meeting a young couple at a bar who talked about a time when they were on acid and believed if they tried hard enough, they could melt into each other, creating one person. We reckon you can meet people throughout life, whether it be romantic or not, that you become so close too and in tune with, that you become one.”
The video for “Melted Into Two” tells the story perfectly. Featuring bass player Brett Jansch’s sister Kelly Jansch (also member of kick-arse punk band TOTTY) and her partner Ellie, the band witnessed their love story unfolding firsthand and felt it was the epitome of what they were expressing in the song. They asked the couple if they would be open to sharing their story as part of the video and they generously agreed.
