After a six year break, noise-punk weirdos Melt-Banana — vocalist Yako and guitarist Agata — have delivered a new work of exquisite pain, fetch. The 2011 Tohoku earthquake meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant had a tremendous impact on Melt-Banana, Yako told Spin magazine.
“It is hard to explain exactly how it affected me and what has been changed, but it affected me on a very deep level,” she said.
“I could not concentrate on writing music for some time for reasons I couldn’t explain,” Agata said.
fetch will be released on Oct. 1 but you can hear the whole thing now over at Spin.
