Montreal’s Wild Mercury have revealed their new single ‘Calling Me‘. It’s a brooding, terse effort which twists and turns, leaving the listener dazed and shaken.
Having started out as a folk group, the trio were ultimately tempted over to the dark side of scruffy, riotous rock music. The ominous, sinister instrumentation harks back to early Queens of the Stone Age, albeit with more moments of euphoria and urgency.
‘Calling Me‘ is an excellent introduction to the band, summarising everything they stand for: a rough and ready attitude to their art; low-fi tones; and a dedication to making sounds which are abrasive yet enticing.
