The Melting Ice Caps is the solo guise of former Luxembourg frontman David Shah. Though this is his second single, it's the first one to be entirely self-produced. It's released on as a free download through the God Is In The TV Singles Club on the 20th of October.
Lead track 'Selfish Bachelor' is a swirling, oddly uplifting marriage of dirty guitars, pulsating electronica and perhaps the most candid lyric David has ever put his name to. Meanwhile, b-side 'How To Appear Well-Adjusted' is chamber pop par excellence, with violins and accordions wrapped around a blackly comic guide to surviving daily life. This will be available to God Is In The TV Zine users only for the first month, before being made free to download to all afterwards.
