Melanie MacLaren writes about ordinary things, capturing the beauty of everyday life by filtering it through a contemporary lens. She’s been compared to Joni Mitchell and Phoebe Bridgers.
Melbourne, a dreamy indie folk song, is marked by fingerpicking guitar and hypnotic fiddle. In addition, it comes with synthesizers that create an ambient environment. The sound can sometimes be melancholic, however, there’s also a blinding brightness to contrast it. Melanie’s vocals sound airy, but they accentuate the lyrics well.
