Melvoy – San Franfrisco | Irrelevant Elephants – June 28th at Amnesia

San Diego native Melvoy now calls San Francisco his home, and it sounds like the Bay Area is happy to have him. Melvoy (real name Emmanuel Castro – perfect) records high energy, brazen millennial surf-rock with just enough attitude to keep you on your toes.


The full Melvoy solo album is released later this summer, but the track San Francisco (a catchy spooky rock song about moving to SF and…well,  getting more than you bargained for) ought to whet your appetite.

Produced by Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, Regina Spektor) and mixed by Andy Freeman (City Tribe, Eisley, The Soft White Sixties), San Francisco really does sound as though it could’ve been placed on an early Strokes record, if those New Yorkers had paid tribute to the West Coast and not that other one.

Melvoy’s next show is at Amnesia on June 28th. Enjoy the tunes and keep supporting local bay area music.
