“All three songs bristle with energy and it genuinely sounds like this is the start of something promising. 'Who Is Gonna Save You Now' is a catchy new-wave tune with a big chorus. 'No Goodbyes' will be of particular interest to fans of the Belfast indie scene as it takes its starting point from the Backwater song 'In These Last Days', although it turns into a new song in its own right. 'Desert Skies' is my favourite one at the moment, managing to blend a sweet Teenage Fanclub-esque chorus with a sunny LA/ Laurel Canyon vibe, it kind of underlines where Tanya has come from and where she is headed.”

“My pick of the bunch is No Goodbyes, a wash of throbbing bass, Tanya’s melancholic triple-tracked vocals and shimmering guitars that sounds not unlike Last Splash-era Breeders crossed with early Ride. I’d buy that for a dollar...”

“Across the Line has been playing music written and performed by Tanya Mellotte (originally from Scotland) since her time with Belfast Peel faves Tunic and more recently Skibunny. Recently Tanya packed her belongings in a little knotted hankie on a stick and jetted off to Los Angeles. Within weeks she was Djing and plotting a new record and ATL has been playing the fruits of her labour on the show. We're a curious bunch though and demanded more info....”

“Skibunny’s Tanya Mellotte has revealed her latest, solo, project, the True Vaults. As the True Vaults Facebook explains: After a particularly grueling UK winter tour, Tanya fled to the Californian sunshine to write the next record. “It became clear fairly quickly that this would be a solo album, during the demo stage I realized I knew exactly what sound I wanted and there were a lot of things I needed to get off my chest.” You will also find two tracks streaming on the FB page or on their Reverb Nation”

“A little shout-out to the Queen of Vinyl, Tanya Mellotte, who was one half of the DJ team behind the clubnight Skibunny, my favourite night of the week when I was in my 20s. Also where I had my first kiss with my now husband! Tanya has been in LA for a while & has recorded new music with a wealth of talented folks... Check out http://www.facebook.com/TheTrueVaults”
