After three years of silence following their successful “We Collide” album, MESH return with „Only Better“, the pre-release single to the forthcoming LP “A Perfect Solution“ to be released in October. Those who are familiar with the British duo will know that neither title is meant to be taken as optimistically as they may first appear, and those who let the music take effect quickly realize that it is precisely the opposite, for MESH have become harder, dirtier, and darker on “Only Better” than we have become accustomed to. The former synth-pop heroes are not afraid to break from convention and make use of guitars either, which will likely raise some eyebrows, particularly on the exclusive B-side “Shattered Glass”. Both songs are perfect previews to the style on the new album, both in music and lyrical content. Both the single and the album deal with the less beautiful aspects of a relationship, painful compromises, fateful dependencies upon each other and because of each other, relationships whose best days are behind them yet are continued out of fear of giving them up rather than an emotional connection. If that were not enough, the tracks also feature the incomparably melodic vocals of MESH frontman Mark Hockings, who is definitely to be regarded as one of the best singers in the genre. Tracks: 01 Only Better (Gritty) 02 Only Better (Club) 03 Shattered Glass 04 Only Better (Alien6 Remix) 05 Everything I Made (Kloq Remix)
