After delivering one of the most acclaimed Australian debut albums of recent times The Hurting Scene, Melody Pool returned in 2016 with her stunning sophomore album Deep Dark Savage Heart.
Deep Dark Savage Heart painted a dark insight into a personal place in Melody’s mind; guiding the listener to confronting depths.
Following the release tour for Deep Dark Savage Heart, Melody went on to share a more literal account of her experiences when she featured on Australian Story in 2017. At this time, Melody announced she was to take a break from music to focus on rehabilitating her mental health.
During her time off, Melody focused on writing her third studio album which she’s self-produced and recorded on her 160 acre farm in regional NSW. It draws on her recovery and progress and also the angst and pain experienced along the way.
In 2021, Melody Pool will announce her awaited return with new music penning its way into her sets, exploring a new and re-birthed brilliance hinting at subjects of empowerment, resurgence and uprising.
We're excited to have Melody Pool on for The Gum Ball as part of her glorious and inspiring return.
“I feel like I’ve really stood my ground with this record. I don’t ever want to make an album filled with pop hits. It’s always going to be me playing guitar and singing the truth” - Melody Pool
