With an indie pop band that goes by the name of the Melons, it would be weird for these two girls to have any other sound. So, of course, From Here to Helsinki is a pleasant 7" slice of upbeat, female-fronted ballads that looks up to Heavenly, Cub, Wat Tyler, and Eggplant. Even if this sound has been repeated over and over again, it'll never get old, especially with the Melons neat use of a drum machine.
