What’s this? The absolute beauty of new single from Swedish artist Melanie Wehbe. ‘Irony’.
What’s it like? A lush, string-laden, intricately crafted, blissfully dreamy stunner of a tune. It sounds like two (or more) excellent songs merged together and where it then manages to be even greater than the sum of its parts. Every time that chorus appeared, we were close to blissing out entirely. Though the best bit is undoubtedly the final 15 seconds or so. Sublime.
Written by? Melanie herself, along with Patrik Jean and Helmer Norrby (and Helmer also produced it).
More from Melanie? Last year, she also released these two crackers: ‘Forget You‘ and ‘Make Room‘.
