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.

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”.

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”.

Committing to raw power, UK band Mellor has shared their latest record ‘Gargoyle Groove’, which is a culmination of years spent listening to bands like Oasis and Arctic Monkeys. Released under Triple B Records, the single gives us a hint of what their forthcoming album, titled Problematic Passions, will sound like.

The record feels like pure expression. It is as if Mellor held back nothing while they delivered each note and lyric, which is probably true given the intensity of the track. There is nothing mild about it. No, each chorus is an undiluted thrust of distortion. 

The band originates from Redding, UK, and was started during its members’ younger years. There is an element of their rebellious youth that has carried through, becoming a part of the band’s charisma. It’s as if we are watching a live performance from an old, beat-up coach in a garage plastered with peeling band posters and littered with crumpled beer cans. We’re happy to lounge around and listen while Mellor tweaks their amps and floors their pedals.
