Describing themselves as making indie ‘pop-smack’, Mellor are a four piece from Reading whose sound and image has been compared to that of The Libertines, Arctic Monkeys and Miles Kane
Gary, Josh and Evert met at school and the line up was completed when Sam was introduced to them through a mutual friend. Laying the foundations of their songs through Gary’s guitar parts and lyric ideas, the band work collectively to create the sound they’re looking for. Their latest EP ‘Damage/Joy’ was produced by Mo Hausler (Babyshambles, Everything Everything) and the band feel this is their strongest release to date.
Since forming in 2011 Mellor have released three singles and an EP, all of which have gained national radio play courtesy of Absolute Radio and BBC 6 Music. The band have earned glowing reviews from magazines such as NME and Artrocker and have a large and ever growing fanbase earned through a year of intensive touring and support slots for The Milk, Carl Barat and The Kooks.
