Review: Mellor’s single “Battle Hardened” – Release date September 16, 2022
If you think combining sound of any combination of bands/artists that came before you and coming up with something good is easy, think twice. There were so many bands that went for a combination of Arctic Monkeys and Jack White and/or his White Stripes that is refined on one hand, and rowdy on the other and failed miserably at it. Luckily for Mellor, they do exactly that on this single, adding to it, along with a clean guitar sound some of this catchy Britpop harmonies. Good one.
“Battle Hardened,” the second single taken off Mellor’s forthcoming debut album, Problematic Passions (out November 11, 2022 via Triple B Records).
BAND: Gary Kingham (lead vocal and guitar), Josh Woodward (bass), Sam Igoe (drums), and Kristian Bell (guitar).
