'Rain Like This'

Manchester's Mealtime are something else.

A group of alt-pop vagabonds steering relentlessly towards the future, their day-glo aesthetic is tempered by a raw, DIY feel.

Flouro-drenched alt-pop akin to Superorganism, dampened by Lancashire rain, each new single from Mealtime feels like an event.

New track 'Rain Like This' is their first blast of new music in 2020, the start of a colossal year for the Manchester project.

An extra-dimensional bop, it builds to that searing chorus, a wild, over-the-top energy combined with a cheeky nudge 'n' wink.

Sara Carpentieri directs the visuals, with each member of Mealtime gaining a new alter ego, inspired by early 00s Cartoon Network shows.

Almost interrupted by the police (!) it's a fantastic clip - watch 'Rain Like This' below.
