Mellor are set to release their first new material of the year, single ‘Helsinki’ on March 22 via AWAL. After a reshuffle of members the new line-up has settled on: Gary Kingham , Sam Igoe , Kristian Bell and Josh Woodward. Mellor have been featured on the Spotify Indie list, Transistor and Hot New bands playlists, Apple Music’s Breaking Bands playlist, had national and local radio support from Tom Robinson, John Kennedy, Frank Skinner and most recently Abbie McCarthy on BBC Radio 1 and have also played at festivals such as HURL Fest, Butefest, Truck Festival, Tex Fest, Are You Listening, Tramlines and Camden Rocks.
‘Helsinki’ is another absorbing indie mammoth from Mellor. Traveling on blistering guitars and a relentless bass groove this track is set to high voltage from the start. Swagger drenched guitars wail, soar and majestically intensify the song while a punchy drum and elastic bass rumble keep that snappy foot tapping foundation that is sure to have a live audience going wild. With a surge of adrenaline through every pulse, beat and guitar tickle this song is one electrifying thrill. The track is tight, as Mellor create an exhilarating wall of sound that crashes into every fiber of your being- filling you with instant energy. Gary Kingham’s warm raspy vocals lace the song in passion and expression as he effortlessly and powerfully holds his own over the mighty instrumental hop and dynamic soundscape. It’s one whirling rush of fantastic indie. Make sure to check ‘Helsinki’ out when its released on March 22nd.
About the track the band said :” ‘Helsinki’ is about someone who has been lead on and given false hope for so long, that they eventually have that realisation, where they should just cut that controlling, self-indulgent person off completely.”
