Jeff Rosenstock’s “Melba” a track that saddles the line between pop-punk and alternative rock. This means that there are the swirling guitars of Fugazi and The Pixies mixed in with the nasalness of The Descendants and The Dickies. Melba’s instrumentation is on-point, too; the chunky bass lines, jangly guitars and splashy drums will indelibly tattoo the melodies of the single deep into listeners’ brains. Vibrant and refreshing, Melba speeds up even further at the 2:15 mark; fans will be as amped up at the conclusion of the track as they were when the song first started. Check out Melba below the drop.
