Washington, DC band Melodime released their new single “Little Thing Called Love” on Friday, June 3, produced by Rick Beato (Parmalee, NeedToBreathe) at Black Dog Sound in Stone Mountain, GA. The band’s music merges a slight southern twang with rock and roll, successfully blending stunning piano melodies with catchy guitar riffs and sing-along choruses. Floyd Magazine notes they create “a unique brand of Southern-flavored rock that celebrates the musical past while foreshadowing the sounds of the future.” “Little Thing Called Love” is available now on iTunes.
Following the release of the new single, Melodime will head out on the The Big Wheels Tour, a 35-date headline run, in support of both “Little Thing Called Love,” as well as their recent B-sides and collaborations album, The Underdogs. The tour kicks off with a hometown show at The State Theatre in Falls Church, VA on June 11, and will continue throughout the East Coast, Southeast and Midwest.

The band has also left its mark internationally with performances in Mexico, Canada, and Europe, all while founding and running a charity, ‘Now I Play Along Too,’ which provides musical instruments and lessons to underprivileged children in the DC area, Florida and Haiti. The band is quickly becoming a fan-favorite in the festival scene, playing three consecutive Rock Boat cruises, alongside acts like Gavin DeGraw, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and NeedToBreathe.
In their hometown of Northern Virginia, the group has performed at such popular venues as Jammin Java, The State Theatre, and 9:30 Club. Melodime’s previous albums were recorded with platinum-selling producers, including Where the Sinners & the Saints Collide with Rick Beato (Parmalee, NeedToBreathe), and 3 Reasons For Fighting with Jim Ebert (Butch Walker, Cowboy Mouth).
