UK rock band Mellor has released their latest album Problematic Passions via Triple B Records. The formidable band’s formerly released EP, Dive into the Strange, enjoyed the #2 spot on the iTunes rock album chart and #3 on the Amazon Music rock album chart. Locally, Mellor graced the airwaves of the prestigious BBC Introducing Berkshire, BBC Radio 1, and BBC 6.

The new album’s song lineup tells a story. The last track concludes satisfactorily, presenting answers to questions pondered regarding the conflicting and agonising emotions explored in every track that proceeds the first song. ‘Could If I Would’, the first track in the album, deals with anticipated hope, courage, and a certain conflicting inability to act in a certain way. The conflict is appeased and essentially addressed in the last track, ‘Call It Off’, which deals with letting go of a situation that does not benefit the self, especially if there is an internal personal conflict.

Mellor relays the conceptual composition of Problematic Passions: “Jake Day has done an impeccable job of mixing the songs and working with us to find the personality of the album. Although not a true concept album, it has a recurring theme of the bad things people do or get themselves into. A problematic passion could be anything from drugs and stealing to manipulation and money troubles”.

Under Triple B Records, the fierce indie rock band Mellor released their latest single ‘Meet me by the Ocean’ on the 21st of October, preceding their forthcoming album Problematic Passions. Mellor was started by Gary Kingham and Josh Woodward who met in college and is comprised of Josh Woodward on bass, Gary Kingham on guitar and lead vocalist, Kristian Bell on guitar and Sam Igoe on drums.

Stream / Download: Mellor – ‘Meet Me By The Ocean’

Mellor’s ‘Meet me by the Ocean’ discharges formidable confidence as heard in the powerful vocals that are enduring in their transmission of the emotions behind the lyrics and consistently illicit anticipation in listeners about the subsequent vocal cords. The words that come to mind regarding the vocalisation are robust, commanding and mighty among many which are carefully and perfectly woven into the musical notes of the song.    

Mellor discusses the theme of the single with these words: “MMBTO is a tragic love story. It’s about a suicide pact, a couple who end their lives together peacefully before the world consumes them. In a world of war and global warming, it’s a sobering fantasy of walking into the ocean together, side by side. It’s a track that doesn’t quite follow our usual formula. It came together organically, stemming from Kris’s (lead guitar) pedalling riff and the ambient guitar line/vocal combination”.

SUN SILVA releases a new song ‘Ride’

SUN SILVA have released their brand new single ‘Ride’. The new song comes ahead of their largest headline show yet at London’s Colours on December 3rd.

‘Ride’ is a high-octane cut from the London indie collective. The song’s kaleidoscopic psychedelic flourishes are paired with propulsive riffs in the explosive chorus, which results in a sound playing like a combination of Foals, Temples and Tame Impala.

Regarding the new single frontman Oscar Gormley says, “‘Ride’ is probably our most energetic and riff-driven song to date. We’d been writing a lot of mid-tempo dance music and started to really miss this kind of incessant heavier side to our sound. Lyrically the song is about feeling totally out of control. It’s about that space after a period of mental instability where you don’t know where your mind is going to take you next.”

Having only emerged in the tail end of last year, SUN SILVA has been quick to make a name for themselves as one of the most exciting new bands.

‘Ride’ is the latest in a string of singles including ‘Just The Romantic’, ‘Sun Skin Air’ and ‘Blue Light’, which have seen them achieve huge critical acclaim and millions of streams on Spotify, while also carving out an impressive mark on the live scene.

SUN SILVA have gained praise from indie tastemakers including NME, DIY, Wonderland, Clash, Dork Magazine and more, while they also receive support from Radio 1, Radio X and BBC Introducing.

They have sold out shows across London and also played in support of the likes of Jungle, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and KAWALA.

The play their largest headline show yet at Colours, Hoxton on December 3rd, which rounds up a defining year for the band as they gear up for more exciting announcements in 2020. Tickets for Colours, Hoxton are available via Gigantic.
