'Parallels' is the debut EP of singer-songwriter Melis. Combining her fragile voice with personal and emotional lyrics, 'Parallels' comprehends the growth Melis has made since entering the sphere of music in 2012 as part of electronic duo IYES.
The Berlin based songwriter with Czech/Turkish roots wrote 'Parallels' during a challenging period of her life. Facing the world after her parents’ divorce and broken friendships, she dealt with her emotions via her writing process, projecting her experiences into her music. At a very young age, Melis started writing poems and short stories, whilst she also learned to play guitar, naturally combining melodies with words.
Melis touches upon subjects melodramatically and thoughtfully, provoking a beautiful contrast between true feelings and old love.
