Ones To Watch 2020: Mellor

Ones To Watch

Rising to fame is unsigned band Mellor who make it onto the ICM Ones To Watch list following a ground-breaking 2019.

The Reading quartet, comprised of Gary Kingham (vocals), Sam Igoe (drums), Kristian Bell (guitar), and Josh Woodward (bass), released their self-recorded debut EP last month titled ‘Dive into the Strange’.

Blistering guitars and energetic instrumentation, the five-track EP charted at number 33 on the iTunes Album Chart and 38 on the Amazon Album Chart. Now for an unsigned band that’s a creditable achievement.

After a busy summer of festivals packing out tents at Isle of Wight, Truck, and Camden Rocks just to name a few, Mellor are ready to hit the ground running once again with an Independent Venue Week show in Guildford (Jan 30th) and a hometown show in Reading with This Feeling (Feb 8th).

Listen to EP track ‘Hey Now, Sister’ and all of the other currently announced ICM Ones To Watch artists on our Spotify playlist! Every day this month we’ll add another band to the list.
