Dehra Dun is what happens when five people try to achieve an energy source not dependent on fossil fuels but lacking the sufficient funds to adequately accomplish the task. So instead of cold fusion, melt rock is the result. Melt Rock is the meltiest of all rock and roll schools yet discovered.
Mariposa Salad Days is the debut EP from the world's foremost purveyors of Melt Rock. It's a sampler of the eclectic sounds that Dehra Dun produces.
"Having lovingly self-defined their sound as "Melt-Rock", Dehra Dun sonically represent the future of what rock may become; guided by the firm hand of technology. Indeed an amalgam of sounds melted together to fuse into one solid yet malleable body of work, Dehra Dun's music acts as a character in its own narratives. The tunes echo, hauntingly distant, as currents of real live flesh and blood and breath are mellowed by electronic subtleties. Often, in this day and age, musicians are engineers, as is the case with Dehra Dun. Their music is a multidimensional sensory experience usually accompanied by a visual representation of itself, often in the form of an experimental video presentation created by the band."
