Stealing the off-kilter eccentricities of Alt-J and welding them to the balls-to-the-wall rock of Queens of the Stone Age, ‘Cigarette Lighter’ is the assured new single from South London prodigy Liam Ramsden aka Mellah. Produced by wunder-producer James Ford, the track is the next taste from the forthcoming Middle England EP following the equally excellent ‘Paseo’.
Speaking of the new track, arriving with a delightfully quirky video, Ramsden adds: ‘The song is about the growing divide between people’s political opinions and the way social media seems to be accentuating this. The video shows an audience attending a performance but not engaging with the performer as they are engrossed in the echo chamber within their phones.’
Check out the video below. Middle England is out July 6th via Columbia.
