Up-and-coming UK producer Submerse has shared his new "Melonkoly" tune, the title track from an EP due to drop on October 7 via Project: Mooncircle. Following his Algorithms and Ghosts EP from earlier this year, Submerse continues to twist an array of light and youthful sounds into teary-eyed jams for late-night drives. "Melonkoly" is built on fluffy touches of UK garage, and opens with filtered radio static and swelling pads before clunking along on 2-step beats and ethereal vocal samples for the rest of its three minutes. Eventually, the buzzing pads rise above the steady song structure, helping to create a sense of tension until it all breaks down into a somber field recording.
