With their new album ‘Deep Heat‘ due to drop this August, Oh Mercy have given us the first taste of what to expect with the lead single ‘Drums‘.
The first thing that stands out is just how different their sound is compared to on their last album ‘Great Barrier Grief’. I actually really like the stripped back feel, but it seems to have something a little extra compared to most indie rock, I think its an essence of bluesy swagger. The constant swapping to and from the Bee Gees like falsetto really does it for me, and creates a track with multiple personalities. The plucky bassline is pretty sexy. Its a song that doesn’t take itself so seriously, and leaves me happy to “keep beating that drum”.
Oh Mercy have developed a really cool new sound, definitely digging the tune and cannot wait til the album.
