Melua – Waves Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising progressive rock band, MELUA, from Finland. We have reviewed their debut song, Waves, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Melua is a promising melodic/progressive/doom rock band I discovered about a month ago with their impressive debut, Waves, which was released as a single not long ago in 2020. Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Melua is a new band, yet I feel like they are much more experienced in making music than the only Melua project. Waves is a very professionally put together, handled, and recorded song that exceeds every expectation we usually have from up and coming bands. First of all, I am glad that these Finnish gentlemen were able to offer some of their national/regional vibes within their music. Some might disagree with me on this, but I think this is very important, especially in a music scene where 99% of the music has only Western vibes. As you all know, metalheads love Northern vibes, and Northerns love metal. So, the Finnish/Scandinavian vibes in Melua’s music help the band separate themselves from the rest of the world. On the other hand, the band has tried to make their debut with a 9 minutes long progressive song, which is admirable. This small detail also tells us about the band, their love for music, understanding of music, and approach.

Waves has reminded me of some bands such as Anathema, Tool, and Riverside with its overall vibe, instrumentation, and structure. I am not sure who directly influenced their music, yet I can say that Melua is not following anybody else’s path. This is another crucial detail, especially for the new bands. Additionally, the song has a great atmosphere that immediately pulls the listener into its world. Nothing feels too much or not enough, I never felt like losing my excitement while listening to it until the end. The structure is not that standard; it is more like a journey. The mood is dark, as we usually expect from Scandinavians, and there’s no room for any major chords.


Technically, Waves has excellent standards as well. Everything sounds clean, clear, natural, atmospheric, dark, moody, and in great harmony. Just like I mentioned earlier, they don’t sound like an up and coming band at all. Their music has much higher standards, both musically and technically. I don’t know who produced Waves, yet I can easily say that he has done a fantastic job. The band has the right foundations in their music, and the producer worked on the song accordingly.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I’ve had a great time listening to Melua. Waves is a great debut, regardless of how many listeners it will reach in this chaotic world. This is a debut that you put out if you’d like to build yourself a solid fanbase as a band. We respect that a lot. I can see that Melua is on the right track with everything they have done so far. In my book, all they have to do is to continue making music while improving their musical character, and time will take care of the rest.
