Approachable Members Of Your Local Community have a whole new look and sound to introduce to the world with the addition of Sage Mellet to the group. ‘Strong Enough’ was an exciting reinterpretation of the bands pulsating dynamic with a punchy pop hook immediately getting stuck in your head. With Mellet’s vocals intertwining perfectly with co-lead singer Josh Blashki, they highlighted the new directional palette that this project will steer towards.
New single ‘Just Say It’ is the first taste of Sage Mellet on solo lead vocals, and she holds strong through this infectious summer anthem. Serving some NEIKED, HAIM and Fickle Friends vibes, there is a carefree attitude that pulsates through the production that is then contrasted by some introspective lyrics. Reflecting on the overthinking that can happen when there is breakdown of communication in a relationship, it’s important to lay it all out on the line and get on the same page. “You’re on my mind, even though you think I don’t care. And I’m on your mind, even though I can’t see it there” she sings during the opening moments of the song.
