The English indie-rock quartet Mellor release the single Arms Length on the 16th of February.
In what seems to be becoming a tradition of one feature about Mellor during the course of the calendar year, first in 2016, next in 2017 and now in 2018 as news arrives of a new release, will this change, I wonder?
Either way, always a delight to hear new music by Mellor and a pleasure to be able to feature Arms Length.
The sprightly sounds dance around the room on the back of tautly strung drum-skin, that rebounds as sharply as a pinball rubber, infecting the room with a sense of movement while guitars perform interweaving choreography as the bass tempts the listener on to the floor to join in with the track, while vocal, like a flamboyant orchestra conductor, sweeps flourishes of intonation to the composition, which resultingly much like their musical personalities and stage performances, leaves the audience smiling broadly with eyes twinkling in delight.
