Portland's Melville play visceral, melody-driven American Rock n' Roll. Founded on openness and a collaborative spirit, there's a tangible longevity to Melville that begs the four-piece to explore and discover new layers to its sound. Either a result of, or a reason for Melville’s longevity, the band’s sound is neither restrictive to nor a derivative of the current era. The music has been compared to the likes of Ryan Adams, Tom Petty, Snow Patrol, and REM. Above all, Melville’s invigorating brand of emotive rock ‘n roll believes in transcendence through music and aims to move its audience to believe the same.
