    After delivering one of the most acclaimed Australian debut albums of recent times, Melody Pool returns with a stunning second album, 'Deep Dark Savage Heart!'
    As the title suggests, the new album takes the listener to a deeper, darker place. This is not a collection of throwaway pop hits. As Melody states simply in "How Long": "I'm not trivial."
    "I'm really proud of this album," Melody says. "It really shows where I'm at – or where I was at – and how I wanted it to turn out."
    'Deep Dark Savage Heart' follows Melody's debut, 2013's 'The Hurting Scene.' The Australian declared it Album of the Year, with Iain Shedden calling it "one of the most accomplished debuts by an Australian singer-songwriter for many years." The Herald Sun's Cameron Adams described Melody's music as "beautiful and passionate but not dumbed-down for easy digestion," while Rolling Stone listed it as one of the 50 best albums of 2013, stating, "Pool's voice is sublime, her lyrics propelled by heartache."
    After the success of 'The Hurting Scene,' Melody moved to Melbourne from Kurri Kurri, her first time away from home. She also toured with The Milk Carton Kids and did gigs with the Eagles, before returning to Nashville to make 'Deep Dark Savage Heart' with producer Brad Jones, an American who has worked with several Australian artists, including Ben Lee and Missy Higgins. "Brad's like a nutty professor in the studio," Melody smiles. "He's always up for trying new things."
    'Deep Dark Savage Heart' is Melody Pool's story.
    "I feel like I've really stood my ground with this record. I didn't ever expect to make an album filled with pop hits. It's always going to be me playing guitar and singing the truth."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poetic lyrics, beautiful voice ! I was lucky enough to stumble across Melody Poole when she performed alongside her good friend Shane Nicholson at his most recent CD launch. I was immediately moved by the beauty of her voice and melodies, but even more so by her brutally insightful lyrics to do with love, loss, depression and moving on. This is a polished album of exquisitely crafted songs.
