Boot and Spleen makes a statement, both sonically and in its message. Inspired by the dark history of British colonialism in India, it asks the question: “What is it to be British? What's that identity now, in 2019? What sort of behaviours are allowed towards minorities, or from minorities towards the majority?”
There’s no simple answer to those questions but Melt Yourself Down are set to ignite debate by asking them. Founded by sax innovator Pete Wareham and fronted by lead vocalist Kush Gaya, they play into a great tradition of British insurgents that spans decades and genres, from the Sex Pistols to Radiohead, and from Kate Tempest to Young Fathers. Yet the band’s lineage is also connected to jazz’s rich history of sticking a middle finger to The Man. “Jazz was the wild, dirty music of the 20s, 30s,” says Kush. “It was not a sit down, polite, experience.” Pete adds: “I love jazz best when it feels dangerous.”
This new music is the band’s strongest statement yet, representing both a peak of musical synthesis for the band as well as a personal triumph. Working with production legends Youth and Ben Hillier, the band have reimagined themselves and created a bruising re-up of their signature sound with added synths, anthems and epic joyrides.
