Vivid Montreal Trio WILD MERCURY Rattles And Rolls On Brand New Smasher ‘ORANGE COUNTY…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

12 June 2019


(photo: Valérie Paquette)

Band: WILD MERCURY

Who: “A band that originally wanted to start a folk group that focused on warm vocal harmonies. Surrounded by instruments in their dark jam basement, they got caught up
by an urge of rock, of rooted sounds and of an unfulfilled dream of a riot youth. Better
late than never.”

Pick: ORANGE COUNTY – brand new single, with “lyrics that are a mix of field notes
written during a vacation in Florida, and ideas that came as a consequence of turning
30-years-old – wanting simplicity, but realizing that you sowed intricacies all throughout
your 20s. We composed the music by trying to picture ourselves on a trip where the sun
is always shining”
says the band

Score: Holy smoke! Here’s a boosting smasher bouncing up and down, going slow and fast, hopping from left to right and back. ‘Orange County‘ is sharp-witted, is brisk, is vital and most of all it rattles and it rolls big time. Make yourself some room, you’ll need it to jump around after hitting the button right here…

Montreal Trio WILD MERCURY Creates Sensual Blues Electricity On New Single ‘CALLING ME’…

Brand new sonic impulses

8 March 2019

Band: WILD MERCURY

Who: “Wild Mercury gals originally wanted to start a folk group that focused on warm vocal harmonies. Surrounded by instruments in their dark jam basement, they got caught up by an urge of rock, of rooted sounds and of an unfulfilled dream of a riot youth. Better late than never.”

Track: CALLING ME – new single

Score: This slow moving blues stroke cuts like a Swiss knife, with the intensity heating
up briefly, midway, only to resume its mysterious pace again, leaving you behind in the end with your finger on the repeat dial! Top! The Dead Weather – the supergroup with
Jack White on drums and The Kills‘ fab Alison Mosshart on vocals – immediately comes to mind as Wild Mercury also creates an electrical mix of sonic sultriness, sensual bluesiness and pithy edginess. Striking performance. Check it out right here…
