Four-man crew Melon Bomb's only previous output has been a smattering of re-edits on compilation style releases, so this debut solo single for Tensnake's True Romance label is a significant step in their blossoming career. It's quietly impressive, too, with the Ibiza-based quartet offering up a pair of tracks that are the audio equivalent of sweltering afternoon sunshine. Lead cut "Sweetness" sees them cloak bumping house beats and thickset bass in wavy, delay-laden electric piano snippets, swirling orchestral samples and well-placed spoken word vocal snippets. Virtual B-side "Didn't I" is a little more Balearic in tone, with pulsing, French Touch-style motifs, tropical sound effects and glistening guitar samples riding another chunky bassline and energetic house beats.
