Mercy Kelly release new single ‘Maidens’
“Their sound is bold enough to fill a stadium, and you can just imagine the scenes at live gigs”God Bless The Bands
Finally free from the scourge of national covid restrictions, the band have dropped the final of a trio of singles recorded at Manchester’s Vibe Studios with Dean Glover and mastered by Pete Maher. Supporting this release, they are also set to play a headline show at the Eagle Inn (Salford) on Saturday 27th November, supported by Sinclair and Formal Speedwear.
Maidens reveals a previously unheard side to the band; one which encapsulates their brighter and more melodic instincts. It’s no coincidence that the blossoming guitar chimes of Felt and early REM featured heavily on the band turntable throughout the summer, which saw the band support Chris Wise And The Hidden Revolution (featuring members of Paul Heaton’s live band) and perform a sold out headline show at Legends Live Lounge. The uplifting and luminescent sound of Maidens is perhaps fitting of a band now liberated and able to take their brand of stadium-sized, chorus wave sounds out on the road. But, in true Mercy Kelly style, a medieval twist lies planted in the lyrics, hinting that their darker instincts are never truly that far away.
