OFFICIAL VID: The Melodic – Ode To Victor Jara

Let me tell you. This song was absolutely magical when I was privileged to hear it live at Sofar Sounds in San Francisco in a lovely private home. The Melodic from London is a folk pop band with a very bright future. Their debut album Effra Parade comes out on November 5th, and it’s going to be a great release. Ode to Victor Jara easily brings to mind The Decemberists for me. In particular, it reminds me of The Mariner’s Revenge Song, though it doesn’t build to a frenzied fury. Watch the new stop motion animation video for the folk tune below.
