Look Out is an EP of disaster-themed songs begun in a studio in the Pyrenees during a break from Melomane\'s August 2007 tour of France. It is their most rocking output to date, featuring the cynical/poetic/political lyrics of their first three albums, but wading into all-out guitar aggression, large-scale orchestral soundscapes, and bittersweet melodic heartbreak in turns. Or as LucidCulture.com puts it; “Living proof that epic grandeur can be synonymous with great fun.” The EP features a collaboration with LA-based singer/songwriter Eleni Mandell, who lends her vocal abilities to Melomane’s first French-only number, Je Suis Une Allumette.
