The pop-band Melby’s debut album “None Of This Makes Me Worry” was released in 2019, and earned praise from international and Swedish media.

Among others, Clash and The Line Of Best Fit, as well as culture magazine Nöjesguiden in Sweden (“they’ve achieved the perfect combination […] of pop and indie meets folk and psych”). In 2022, Melbys second album “Looks like a Map” was released.

Melby’s members are Matilda Wiezell, Are Engen Steinsholm, David Jehrlander and Teo Jernkvist.
