An Hour to Anywhere is the new album from London, England based quintet Melic.
Pressing play on this impressive offering takes you on a whirlwind extravaganza of musical influences brought by each member of the band, from rock to folk to metal. The opening 40 seconds of Better Off Before lull you into thinking there's a dreamy, pop trip you're about to embark on. Then lead singer and guitarist Mark Hitchcock let's loose with a story about self discovery and the band kicks into gear and a rock n roll show begins.
By the time Nowhere I'd Rather Be gets to the chorus, you can see Melic playing in front of a sold out Wembley Stadium while the crowd rocks along to an epic new anthem, and you realize there's nowhere you'd rather be than lost in that moment.
