Mellah tries not to self-destroy with his new track, 'Death Pillage Plunder'

Mellah has shared his new single, 'Death Pillage Plunder'.

“Death Pillage plunder is about Mauerbauertraurigkeit…," he explains. "I promise that’s a real word. I only discovered it after writing the song but its definition pretty much perfectly encapsulates what the song is about.

"Mauerbauertraurigkeit is the inexplicable urge to push people away, even close friends and family whom you love and who love you and the inability to distinguish between genuine affection and cheap politeness. It’s an incredibly destructive cycle that I have only recently realised I enact.

"The chorus ‘death pillage plunder in the black of my eye’ refers to the part of myself that this isolating pattern seems to come from. The black of my eye being the part of myself that I can’t see but everyone else can, my subconscious or inner child and death pillage plunder being the irrational desire to self-destroy.”

The song arrives alongside news of a headline show at London's Corsica Studios on 7th November. He's also upcoming shows with Alaskalaska in Oxford, Bristol, Manchester and Liverpool.

Check out 'Death Pillage Plunder' below.
