The Watermelon: “Wide eyed and open minded guitar pop”
The Watermelon are North London based melodicists, based around the nucleus of songwriter Tim O’Connor and multi-instrumentalist Antonio Rubanu. The band formed in 2016 after meeting in a recording studio and a subsequent encounter in a Stoke Newington record shop, where Tim and Antonio bonded over a shared love of the Beatles and the best, most wide-eyed and open-minded traditions of guitar pop.
Their debut album ‘Light Works’ was delayed by first-time fatherhood, but is due for release on Ofprom Records in late 2017. Recorded in their secret HQ in Stoke Newington, this collection of lyrical psych-folk ballads and garage rock is at once anthemic and intimate, showcasing a band with an ear for a tune, and a big, beating heart.
