Mellor are a Reading-based indie band taking their name from Joe Strummer aka John Mellor. After a reshuffle of members the new line-up has settled on: Gary Kingham on vocals, Sam Igoe on drums, Kristian Bell on guitar, and Josh Woodward.
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, John Kennedy, Frank Skinner and most recently Abbie McCarthy on BBC Radio 1, who hailed previous single Safe Word as a “Straight up Indie banger”.
Catch Mellor’s electric live show at Modern Art Oxford as part of their nationwide tour finishing at Camden Rocks Festival, London. Mellor new single Helsinki will be released on the day of their Modern Art Oxford headline show.
Plus support comes from Oxford-based band Ideal Marriage
Heavy Pop: Drop it like it's Pop
Meet Mellor; Gary, Sam, Kris, and Josh, the indie 4-piece hailing from Reading. Labelled by Alt Reading as "one of the most exciting acts to come out of Reading", they bring a live show packed with high energy, raucous vocals, big guitar riffs, and pounding drums. The bands hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed, with recent singles being added to Spotify's “The Indie List” (190,000 followers), and “Hot New Bands” (40,000 followers) playlists, and Apple Music's "emerging artists", and "hot new tracks" playlists, as well as This Feeling adding them to their "Big In 2018" list.
