Melissa Hollick and Joe Sullivan are Mauvelle, an electronic duo hailing from Birmingham. With a multitude of tracks under their belt and support from the likes of BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, we’re pretty excited about what the future holds for these two. We caught up with both of them to discuss everything from breakfast to influences.
Hey! We’re great thank you. We’re currently writing a new song and playing around with various synth sounds. I think we’ve just found the one.
We find it’s hard to put an exact stamp on our style because each song has it’s own sound and story. Alternative Pop is the bracket we’d fall into if you had to describe it, sort of Pop but with an electronic ambient edge.
Crowded House – The Very Best Of Crowded House
Peace – In Love
Enya – Paint The Sky With Stars
The Cure – The Greastest Hits
Agnes Obel because her songs will send you into a dreamy trance, so beautiful.
The Struts because Luke Spiller’s vocals are incredible. it feels like Freddie Mercury has come back to life through him.
Joe: You had to come to her first. I can’t top that!
Joe: I would definitely like to be involved in film, perhaps in the filming/editing stage, I wouldn’t fancy myself an actor, I’ve got more of a face for radio.
