Can't Go Back (Featuring David Shane)
It took a while, but one day Mel Ody woke up and realised that if he doesn't live out his dreams of working in music, it'll never happen. Setting out on his adventure was not an easy journey, it takes time and effort to establish oneself out there. Even more so with musicians in every pub, club, and street corner all wanting your time and money. There was only one thing for it, Mel Ody had to work his talent to a point where the competition became his fans and co-workers. That's only been possible thanks to an amazing skill and a lot of persistent hard work.
From starting out as a DJ in his home of Athens, Mel Ody has built a network and reputation to be marvelled at. It was Ios where it all began for real, the club capital of the Greek Islands became a residency for this master of the dance. Working with featured DJs such as Don Diablo, Yellow Claw, and Borgore, Mel Ody was able to play his way into the fan-bases of several of the world's leading lights. Now performing his own material and with hundreds of thousands of Spotify hits across various tracks, Mel Ody is ready to release another.
With a whistling melody a slender beat is projected which evolves into RnB style singing. Then beats pile in like bicycles at the traffic lights, a rev of an engine and some horns for good effect, the pressure builds for a chorus. All breaks down again, revealing delicate vocals with emotional lyrics. Manly feelings, though, ones about doing your best and wanting some recognition. The chorus comes back again, it says we can't go back. Once we have made a move, said a piece, stated our intentions, that information will always be in the memory of those who hear it. The same can be said for becoming an artist, once we're known for it, we are saddled with it for life. It's not all that bad. It's a great track, short, snappy, and full of kinesis.
