Review: Melany Thompson – ‘On My Mind’



It was just last year that we were introduced to the inspired, piano-built compositions of Melany Thompson, and since then she’s wasted no time further defining her sound. A talented artist who found her passion for music early in life, Melany built her debut album, ‘Memories of Home’, as a moving ode to her upbringing and the moments that shaped her life, infusing every composition with heart, soul, and endless love.


With the release of new single ‘On My Mind’, it’s clear that Melany has held firm to this personal approach, digging deep and transforming restless thoughts into engaging melodies. A single that tackles the inescapable dangers of over-thinking, ‘On My Mind’ promotes the healing benefits of music, looking to take hold of every listener and push the restless thoughts from their mind.


At just under three minutes in length, ‘On My Mind’ brings only a brief break from our own restless realities, but within that space, it is simply magical. Flowing with the same heart and depth that made her debut album so enchanting, the new composition is a timeless and wonderfully honest piece that rallies around a serene and perfectly cultivated central melody, effortlessly arranging light, shimmering keys into one of the most beautiful piano pieces that you’re likely to hear this year.



It was already hard, if not impossible, to not be affected by Melany’s work, but ‘On My Mind’ has taken things to a whole new level. The infinite magic of music is how it can shape our feelings and tap into our most honest and vulnerable emotional moments, and with her latest single, Melany has proven that she is a true artist in every sense of the word.


Score: 9/10
