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.

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”.

Under the imprint, The Burma Music, the zealous and dynamic Indie rock band The Burma is releasing their debut album and also sharing the title track on the 14th of October. The triplicate band consist of Peter Piggott (on guitar), Doherty (on drums) and Tony O’Donovan (on vocals). The talented musicians have churned a feverous sound akin to  MGMT and Foster, among others.

The lyricism in Sucker For Stars is impeccable, poetic, and drenched in spoken words and storytelling that brings the mind to a standstill so that one can better grasp the awe-inspiring characteristics of good composition that envelops Sucker For Stars. Every song contains engaging lyrics, rich in constructive lessons and filled with skilful songwriting.    

The Burma reflects on the sound that distinguishes Sucker For Stars: “The album represents two different sounds for us – the first, made up of 6 older songs which we’ve held onto over the years- and then 5 brand new songs showing where our writing style is at in its current form. It’s a milestone moment for us to have our debut album out in the world, it’s been a long time coming”.

March 12, 2019 The LaFontaines announce the release of their new album ‘Junior’

The LaFontaines announce the release of their new album ‘Junior’

Fresh from supporting Mike Shinoda at The Roundhouse, The LaFontaines have announced the release of their new album, ‘Junior’, which will be out on June 14th via So Recordings. The band have also released the brand new single ‘All In’, accompanied by a new video, which is the first taste of what’s to come.

“’All In’ goes directly at the eternal conflict of the unsettled mind. Everything’s a contradiction. ‘Either coming up or going under/ I’ve wasted days wishing I was younger’,” frontman Kerr Okan says.

“All In’ is brooding, a darker tone reflects the contemporary anxieties of connecting in an age of digital facades and false truths. The sound is a progression of the band’s voice that is a sign of things to come on their upcoming record.”

As well as opening for the aforementioned Mike Shinoda, The LaFontaines will this week be heading out on a full UK tour supporting Deaf Havana. The band then have a UK headline tour in June to support the release of the new album. Tickets for the headline tour will go on sale this Friday 15th at 10am and will be available via the LaFontaine’s website –

Proving themselves one of the most exciting bands to emerge from Scotland in recent years, The LaFontaines deliver a unique sound that fuses the guitar swagger of Kasabian, the edgy hip-hop delivery of The Streets and the electronic-pop undertones of Twenty One Pilots to create a style that pushes the boundaries of rock.

Junior is the band’s third album and follows 2017’s Common Problem and their 2015 debut Class, which saw them hit #1 in the Indie Breakers Chart and make the Top 10 in the Scottish chart.

Renowned for their electrifying live shows, the band have previously been on tour with Anderson Paak, Twin Atlantic and All Time Low and last year were main support to Don Broco across the UK and Europe.

Also with a number of major festivals under their belt including Reading & Leeds, Download, The Great Escape, 2000 Trees, T in the Park, Belladrum, NH7, Secret Garden Party, TRNSMT & Reeperbahn, 2019 is set to be another great year for the band with more exciting announcements to come.
