Erik Mattiason, the person in back of Melpo Mene, may have hardly ever reached an market beyond his indigenous Sweden if “I ENJOY You,” the lead one from his second studio room record, hadn’t been included in a favorite Volvo advert in 2008. Naming his task for the Greek muse of tragedy, Mattiason started documenting his folky, electronica-tinged music in the first 2000s. He was agreed upon to Imperial Recordings, the house of like-minded vocalist/songwriter Jose Gonzalez, in 2003, and his debut EP on that label, Don’t Conserve Me, premiered the following springtime. Another EP, Hello Benjamin, arrived in the fall, and his debut full-length, Openings, hit shops in Scandinavia prior to the calendar year was out. His third EP, 2005’s Jedi, signaled the finish (for the moment, at the very least) of Mattiason’s relentless discharge schedule. After 3 years of comparative tranquil, the erstwhile unidentified Melpo Mene discovered himself launched in to the mainstream when Volvo purchased “I ENJOY You,” a monitor from his upcoming record, for a industrial that aired around the world, notably in america. His sophomore record, Bring the Lions Out, arrived on Imperial in the summertime of that calendar year.
