Fasten your seat belts for the shimmering, new pop ride from Mercury Girls. Crafted with the polish and finesse of many years in the industry, the Philadelphia band have created the mild soundtrack to a summer’s breeze with “Ariana.” It glides forward with its lush layers in perfect balance. The male and female vocals compliment each other as they float above the rush of guitar surging gently in the background. Like a pleasant dream of the past personified sonically in the present, the song bounds along with fresh energy that leaves me wanting a whole lot more.
“Ariana” will be out May 20th on Slumberland Records. If you’re not already planning on coming to their show May 15th at Underground Arts with Swell Tone favorite King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and The Murlocs, now you can.
