Last week, self-described madman Justin Scott, singer and bassist of Mercies, dropped by to update us on his life-after-Georgetown. Merging with the talents of John Russell on vocals and guitar and Ezra Finney at drums, the trio has coalesced into a band crafting frenetic but minimal, raucous but tempered, melodically jagged rock, already turning heads and volume knobs . Listen in to hear a little bit about how their sound developed and the future plans of this electrifying band. Mercies is definitely one to keep your eye on, and puts on a fantastic live show. Hear recent demos and live recordings on their bandcamp and take note of tour dates at the Velvet Lounge (3/19), Sidebar Tavern (3/30), Asylum (4/7), and beyond.
