It’s been two and a half years since Melanie Martinez graced our eardrums. She rises like a phoenix from the ash and puffs up her wings, soaring high above her contemporaries. “I’m back from the dead, back from the dead,” she sings. She relinquishes the past and emerges creatively renewed. “DEATH” signals a recharge, a new beginning as she bridges the gap from K-12 and whatever her forthcoming record has in store. She’s always been one to go against the grain of what everyone else is doing, and “DEATH” appears to keep that trend going.
