The track has been written, recorded and self-produced all from isolation.

We are absolutely delighted to be premiering the new single from TWIN XL, the energetic trio comprised of Cameron Walker-Wright formerly of Nekokat and John and Stephen Gomez, formerly of The Summer Set.
Shimmering with sunshine-stained guitar licks and gorgeous electronic fizzles, 'Melt' is a sugary sweet slice of pop-rock that was written, recorded and produced by the band from quarantine.
TWIN XL's lead singer Cameron had this to say about what the song represents:
"Melt is about how much we lose ourselves in other people during relationships. We almost become unrecognizable. It’s about being so enamored with someone that they can do absolutely no wrong.
"One of my favorite lines in the song is “kiss all of my friends goodbye” - I’m the type of person that for better or worse, when I fall into a relationship, I sort of fall off the face of the earth and my friends are texting me like “are you alive??”
He also commented on what it was like creating the song from isolation:
"Writing and recording remotely definitely has its pros and cons. I think while there are some challenges that come along with it, it also has allowed me to more fully realize ideas before presenting them to the guys and vice versa because we have more time to sit with them by ourselves rather than just coming up with things in a room together on the fly.
"Making the music video for Melt was also a very cool experience. We all shot ourselves separately in our houses and our director, Jade Ehlers, had to sort of guide us through the process in order to get the right shots. It was definitely a really fun learning experience"
Well, what are you waiting for? Have a listen!
