REVIEW | Mellor: Damage/Joy

It’s been a while since we last discovered a group who very much lived up to the hype that preceded them, but Reading indie pop-rock band Mellor done just that.

In their near 5 year tenure, the four-piece have impressed countless times with an array of great singles that have earned them positive reviews from the press, including the likes of NME and BBC 6 Music.

Now they put their talents to the ultimate test with the release of their new EP – Damage/Joy.

They fire out the gates with Win Me Over, a ridiculously catchy number defined by a mighty catchy rhythm that will have you struggling to resist the urge to get up and dance.

They then take it down a notch for the lead track Dolly Daydream which entertains with strong vocals and memorable lyrics that are accompanied by some pretty sweet piano work.

They continue to captivate with cracking bass lines in Going Nowhere, before charging to a roaring finish with the riff-loaded Schadenfreude.

An incredibly fun and engaging record that cements Mellor’s stance as one of the hottest up and coming acts in all of England.
