Mel draws upon a wide range of influences, with a sound equally reminiscent of Avril Lavigne and 100gecs, its carnage of the best kind. In a time so full of rage, with a million affronts on marginalised people, an anthem about anger against transphobes registers. It's an emotional release, cathartic and fun.
Through exploring anger as a force of sadness, and a step in the process of grieving, Mel invites us to feel deeply, and then move on, in the most irreverent way, by telling the source of our frustrations that you “really fu**ing hate them.” Anger is valid, but it shouldn’t stop you from moving on, and leaving the negativity behind. The candy sweet musical sound of Mel’s styling, cuts through the bitter and whiny lyrics and vocal styling, it’s pop-punk perfectionism.
