Decent Music PR Limited

Mellow Mayhems, the captivating trio blending roots, rock ‘n’ roll, Motown, and melodic pop influences, is thrilled to unveil their debut single, "Tricks". The song promises to captivate audiences with its infectious melodies, soulful vocals, and dynamic rhythm.

Formed in January 2023, Mellow Mayhems comprises Sam Macdonald (guitar, vocals), Peter Korotki (bass, backing vocals), and Stephen Brown (drums, backing vocals). The band's unique sound is characterised by catchy melodies, beautiful harmonies, and a driving rhythm that leaves listeners wanting more.

"Tricks", the band's first single, draws inspiration from the timeless Motown sound, blending Sam Macdonald’s wide-ranging and soulful vocals and Peter Korotki’s powerful and bouncy bass hook and the complementary horns.

Clocking in at three-and-a-half minutes, the song is a delightful fusion of blues and Motown, with lyrics that echo the raw emotion of Nina Simone - “I’ve no caring for your glaring / I’m no playmate for your hate.”

Reflecting on the creation of "Tricks", Sam Macdonald shares, "The song was written with Motown in mind, and chords and rhythm kind of came from The Band’s classic cover of Marvin Gaye’s Don’t Do It. As the song developed through us playing gigs, the vocals took on a kind of bluesy, soulful feel."

Adding to the track's charm are the individual personalities of each band member. Peter Korotki, drawing from over two decades of musical experience, delivers delicious powerhouse basslines and silky backing vocals, while Sam Macdonald brings seductive melody, infectious beats and vibrant vocals, and Steve Brown's diverse influences inject a dynamic energy into Mellow Mayhems' music while complementing Macdonald and Korotki’s styles.

"Tricks" is a testament to Mellow Mayhems' ability to blend various musical genres seamlessly, creating a sound that is both nostalgic and refreshing. With their debut single, the band aims to leave a lasting impression on listeners and establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
