Soulful and charming, So Academic has always been a great favourite of mine when it comes to Meljoann’s songs, and I was pleasantly surprised when this video popped up after Christmas. With excellent puppet work directed by Lisa Crowne, it’s full of textiles and colours that make a surprisingly good match for the song’s varied textures. There are substantially satisfying beat parts beneath breezy synths, but it’s Meljoann’s voice that fills this track out, and with one foot in the electronica future, and the other stretched back to the vintage gold of female-led R’n’B, she’s always sounded delightfully ahead and beyond our time.
After moving to Brighton last year, Meljoann’s been home for gigs over the holidays, and I think the live show window of opportunity has closed. But if you (rightfully) want more after So Academic, the 2010 debut album Squick is available to stream/buy from Bandcamp.
