Coco Elise – “Make Me Melt”


Perth-based duo Coco Elise show why their sound is making waves on new single “Make Me Melt,” which infuses jumpy guitar lines with atmospheric synth tones and delectably chilled-out vocal hooks. A funk-touched bass line adds to the hypnotic mix and alluring lyrics, described by the act as “about moments when a loved one does something real cute, and your heart melts thinking about them.”

Following recent spots in Vice Australia and Rolling Stone Australia, Coco Elise tout their hooky pop chops here. The vocals maintain a steady, soulful tonal inducement — “you are my love,” — as nostalgic synth tones and hazy guitars intertwine. “Make Me Melt” is a replay-inducing success from this talented Western Australia-based duo.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
