Melkbelly - "Humid Heart"

Photo by Ariella Miller
The latest from Chicago's Melkbelly is a dark indie rock exploration of pure emotion. It stays true to a mostly standard song format, but has a slightly off kilter and dark feel. It reminds me quite a bit of early Speedy Ortiz mixed with Throwing Muses. According to frontwoman Miranda Winters, "Humid Heart" is "... “about how the grief of losing someone suddenly disorients everyday life." The end of the song seems to drone on in the same way for an extended period of time, but given the rest of the song it's somehow perfect.

You can watch the video for "Humid Heart" below. PITH, the new album from Melkbelly, will be available April 3 on Wax Nine/Carpark Records. You can pre-order it here. For more on Melkbelly, check out their website. Current tour dates are below the video.
