Melanie De Biasio: The Flow


Sign in to view read count
Melanie De Biasio is a vocalist from Belgium who sings in a low-pitched, affectless voice over seductive electronically treated vamps. it is a spare, hypnotic sound best heard on this track from her 2014 album, No Deal, (Play It Again Sam, 2014). "The Flow" creeps along on a hypnotic mix of off-center drum beats, brooding keyboards, and De Biasio's swirling, offhand vocal which gives way to her haunting flute playing. The song is a late-night cocktail of noirish soul that ends with the enigmatic mantra, "How about a new way to pray?"
