the melodic - "runaway"

Happy New Year!

Runaway is being released on ANTI Records and is available to download on iTunes now, we’ve been delighted to see it already getting championed by BBC6 Music legend Steve Lamacq and receiving glowing reviews on his Roundtable show as well as plays on “Whispering” Bob Harris’ Radio 2 show. Please listen out and let us know if you spot it being played anywhere else in the coming weeks.

Early 2014 will see us crossing the Atlantic again to tour with the fantastic Johnny Flynn and Malian legends Tinariwen in the US but we will be announcing more UK dates for February and April shortly to celebrate the release of our debut album Effra Parade in Europe so look out for those!

Until then- much Love

The Melodic

Re: London play in the street.


Following on from last year’s ‘Effra street party’

in Mervan Road, it was suggested that we have a playtime in a local street from April 2014 as a once- a-month road closure.(optimum day and hours to be decided)

To see what interest there is we will post on the blog : www.effrablog.com for coments

A series of street closures for children to play out for an hour or so each month to be monitored by parents has been suggested along the lines of www.londonplay.org.uk  Streetplay

London Play set up ( see website above)

Could our street be a play street?

Would you like your street to come alive with play?  The good news is that in many parts of London, starting a play street is fairly easy. Councils have simplified the bureaucracy involved – in some cases you can even apply online – and their growing popularity means your neighbours are likely to be supportive.
