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, and the solitary voyage of writing from a strange new perspective, he grappled with viewpoints that looked critically at the role of the ego in keeping us alive and engaged in the world.

“Get A Rocket” was mixed/produced by Melpo and mastered at Abbey Road, and is the debut release from his forthcoming album, listen below.
