Three stunning vinyl colors, each limited to 100 copies.
Melpo Mene’s Vernalagnia is his most impactful and honest body of work to date.
Vernalagnia, which vaguely translates to “a romantic feeling brought on by spring,” is not only a rebirth for Melpo Mene as an artist but muses on the tidings of life, mimicking the beauty and pain we see in nature and how it manifests in humans. From existential thoughts on free will to the powerful narrative of suicide prevention, Vernalagnia encompasses the gamut of human experiences. “Vernalagnia is the unscripted result of a well-meaning introvert’s musical intuition and thoughts,” says Melpo.
In the focus track “It’s Electrical,” Melpo’s distinct and powerful voice is the star of the
show. Accompanied by subtle percussion, delicate acoustic instruments, and analog
synthesizers, the soundscape was created with human imperfection in mind. The
single explores Melpo’s thoughts on therapy and suicide prevention.
The Stockholm-born Melpo Mene left his native Sweden in 2013 for a trans-Atlantic move to Los Angeles. Equally repelled and fascinated by the sprawl of LA, contrasting with the cocoon of his studio, Melpo writes from his strange new perspective, grappling with the role of ego in keeping us alive and entangled in this world. In Greek mythology, Melpomene was one of the nine Muses (goddesses of music, song and dance.) When the Muses were assigned specific artistic and literary spheres, Melpomene was named Muse of Tragedy. Her name was derived from the Greek verb melpomai meaning “to celebrate with dance and song.”
