After finding their idyllic line-up, Reading quartet Mellor (Gary, Sam, Kris and Josh) have been relentlessly firing on all cylinders since 2016, ensuring their name and mesmerising live performance makes a mark on every Town and City they graft through. Mellor’s love for big riffs, odd note and chord placement, cryptic lyrics and catchy melodies create an overall sound which caters for a large audience, particularly for lovers of Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, Biffy Clyro and Radiohead. Mix that with a well gelled, yet chaotic and energetic live performance, it’s exactly why they’re making waves.
In classic DIY fashion, Mellor are yet to work with management, label or booking agent, which warrants respect for their accomplishments. Support for Mellor has come from far and wide – they’ve 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 on BBC 6 Music; John Kennedy on Radio X; Charlie Ashcroft, Frankie Francis, Jim Gellatly, and Elise Cobain on Amazing Radio; Tim Cocker on Virgin Radio; Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio; Linda Serck on BBC Intro Berks and most recently Abbie McCarthy on Radio 1. Festival performances this year has seen Mellor pack out tents at both Isle of Wight and Truck. With an ever-growing vault of prolifically written tunes, Mellor have the armoury to do some damage.
‘I Don’t Know Where You’re Sleeping Tonight’ is about paranoia and the uncertainty of trust and faith in a relationship. It’s being so sure of your instincts, then doubting them the next. It’s an awful situation most will find themselves in at some time in their life, so we hope it’s a relatable concept for those having trouble.
