Millie Manders & The Shutup have released the video for their latest single, Sweet Melody, a cover of the Little Mix song that is now available via streaming platforms. It may seem slightly incongruous that the band should attempt their take on such a massive global hit, and you probably wouldn’t think to pair the two, but it works. Damn, does it work. The song blisters along at 100mph whilst retaining the essence of the original, but is transformed into a breathless, vibrant, ska-infused punk monster. 

The band’s reputation as one of the most exhilarating live acts in the country has been enhanced by an already frantic 2022. In the spring they supported the legendary Less Than Jake on their UK and Ireland tour – converting legions of new fans every night in the process – before playing their own headline tour to packed venues in early summer, and countless festival appearances currently throughout the UK including Kendal Calling, Rebellion and North East Calling. To add to that schedule, the band have now confirmed support dates with the incredible Ferocious Dog, their first headline tour of Germany, and their Life is A Rollercoaster headline UK tour throughout the autumn.

This is our biggest tour to date, and our first proper tour on EU mainland soil, so we are all naturally buzzing about it. Our headline tour and the Less Than Jake tour were nothing short of mind blowing. We could never have imagined so many people coming out to see us and just how many voices we would hear singing our songs with us. We have made lifelong friends and incredible memories that we will always cherish.” (Millie Manders)
