From the rainy west coast of Bergen, Norway, and the dusty cityscapes of São Paulo, Brazil comes the trip-hop act Melt Motif.

Melt Motif was founded early 2021 by Kenneth Rasmus Greve, and soon Rakel joined on vocals. After demoing their first material they got picked up by Apollon Records. For their upcoming debut album “A White Horse Will Take You Home” the band collaborated with the Brazilian mixing engineer and artist Joe Irente. Trente has by now also joined the band as a real member even before their debut is released, speaking of a very symbiotic endeavour in the studio!

The debut single, “Everything Will Disappear” was released in December 2021 and will be followed by “Mine” (which also got the video treatment as you can see below) in February 2022 and which we present today. Coming up in March will be the band’s 3rd single, “Andalusian Dog” and in April you can expect “Sleep”.

After the album release, a remix album album will be dropped, with contributing artists from around the world, like Russia, Japan, Brazil and Norway. Since the vinyl plants have some delay in pressing up their debut, the band has already started on their second album.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
