He’s the Ukrainian goth teen idol who gave us a flaming performance in Lisbon that charmed viewers to a 7th place televote finish.

And since then Mélovin has kept the ball rolling with a national tour and the steady release of new tracks, including the recent “Z toboyu, zi mnoyu, i hodi” (With You, With Me, It’s Everything). The laid-back single marks his first Ukrainian-language release since his Eurovision stint.

The stylistic change with his earlier work is prominent and profound. While there’s a hint of darkness in the pulsating beats, the track features more mainstream production, with his rich and resonant vocals complimenting the relaxed demeanour of the song.

Singing of how he and his significant other stick together in a dark, black world, Mélovin oozes a hypnotic quality that pulls you in. You can feel the ease he has in his mother tongue.

The “Under the Ladder” hitmaker sums up his image change well.

“My era of the singing Dracula has passed,” he’s said. “It’s time for fresh breath in both my music and my character.”

And as part of that Mélovin recently released an instrumental of the track, stripping things back to let the music shine on its own.

“Z toboyu, zi mnoyu, i hodi”

Autumn came to us
And you sit alone alone
In the dark room
In his arms he is on his own
Hold on, we’re near
Hold your thoughts on the wall
And know what’s around
Everything is pale black as usual

(Chorus)

We’ll see the world once
Colored, familiar to the pain
And do not worry, we are all familiar
With you, with me, and it’s all (x2)
Autumn came to us
And the dark world has found you
We thought together
That I will not go away from you
Hold on, we’re near
Hold your thoughts out
And know what’s around
Everything is pale black as usual

(Chorus) (x2)

Thank you for support our talented young musician. It’s true, his songs are amazingly beautiful, many people admire and enjoy his songs in Ukraine… I believe that the new song will also affect the emotions of Europeans and penetrate into their souls…….

This song is so deep, Beautiful and sad. Mél put all the emotions of his pure soul on it and we can feel it. The lyrics of the song are painful, but inspire hope to overpass the dark moments and the melancholic atmosphere. Someday, we’ll see this world colourful again. Mél is a very special artist and more, a very special boy. The Ukrainian language is beautiful and Mél’s voice is gold. I’m a proud Melovinator from Brazil 🙂

Took you a while, but good that it is there finally… although… goth teen idol? I think he has more than outgrown that label. Labels like that are useless when it comes to Melovin, he’s changing all the time. The ukrainian language is very melodic, a great language to sing in, so yes he has my permission to do that more often as long as the ukrainians do not get to keep him all to themselves, so continue with english, he is improving a lot . Love the melancholic atmosphere in the song, perfectly suits my mood this autumn. Hope… Read more »

Ukrainian isn’t his mother tongue though, he just chooses to write songs in that over Russian.

Thank you so much for this review ! This Melovin’s song is so emotional and sad.. I was on the three last Concerts of him.. and saw three different live performances of this song.. it was so painful for him to sing it… There were living feelings.. and tears .. And when I heard the official audio first time I felt numbness and really pain of loneliness.. Melovin’s voice sounds incredible beautiful in the Ukrainian .. The song is easy and laconic and full of strong feelings.. Melovin is growing as artist so fast and he has absolutely unique sincerity… Read more »

Dear wiwiblogs, I love u so much for you loving Mel! Your support is really priceless. And I’m so proud of him when I read articles like this. You know, here in Ukraine the song made people crazy…It’s so heartbraking and touching and beautiful.. Mel sounds so good and so differently. I hope you’ll have a chance to see how he sings it live, guys. Come to Kyiv in December! Or to Berlin, as Mel announced recently a concert there.
