At The Door

Released: 18 Apr 2023

Label: Tru Thoughts

“At The Door” is the latest single from MELONYX, produced by renowned producer and fellow Nottingham-based artist Joe Buhdha. The track is taken from their upcoming debut album ‘Soul Glow (out 7th July) and follows the celestial celebration of “Solar Power”, which featured production from Brighton-based producer and multi-instrumentalist J-Felix. The single received support from the likes of Jamz Supernova, Craig Charles (BBC 6Music), Huey Morgan (BBC 6Music), BBC Introducing on 1Xtra, BBC Introducing East Midlands, Bandcamp Weekly, Focus Beats (BBC 6Music), Tony Minvielle (Jazz FM), Stereofox, Kid Hops (KEXP), EARMILK, and more.

Tapping into the sultry swagger of the Lover’s Rock riddim fuelling the track, “At The Door” is MELONYX’s call to relinquish your ego at the door and meet your partner halfway. At the core, it’s a loving invitation – delivered with precision and conviction from the Nottingham soul duo – that does not leave room for misinterpretation. Looping vocal hooks enhanced with tender harmonies reinforce the message behind the track, as MELONYX encourage the reconciliation of differences and surrender to unquenchable love and attraction.

The single features on MELONYX’s upcoming debut album ‘Soul Glow’ (out Friday 7th July). ‘Soul Glow’ is the embodiment of a series of prevalent themes and conversations had between MELONYX throughout their friendship and time working together. Drawing on influences from the worlds of Hip Hop, Neo Soul and Lovers Rock, the release serves as a mantra, reminding the duo of their worth; as a manifestation of the growth and evolution yet to come; and as a way of shedding a light on the high value, power, and energy of Black women.
