Released on the 1st of June, Mercurial Man is the latest single from Corby’s psych/indie four piece Luna Rosa. Rory McDade, Darren Myles, Kieran Maguire and Cole O’Neill have played over 200 gigs in just two years, as well as securing plays from BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 6. July will see them play Blackthorn Festival amongst a line up of some of our favourite bands, having now heard Mercurial Man I’ll certainly be heading to see these guys play.
There’s a lot going on in Mercurial Man, the intro has a very slight Radiohead feel to it, quickly turning into something quite interesting. Psychedelic riffs flow throughout, combining with a rock-ish vibe to create something quite captivating. Despite so much going on behind the vocals, Luna Rosa have managed to put everything together in a way that works, without any particular element becoming overpowering.
