As a child, I had the ambition of becoming an astronaut. Imagine the thrill and excitement of floating through space, conducting experiments, launching satellites, and maintaining the spacecraft and equipment. Such a huge goal wasn’t above and beyond an infant’s imagination. Today, I sit here and picture the destruction that would’ve occurred if I was responsible for a rocket. Luckily, you won’t have to because I write music articles for Independent Music News. I do, however, have a song out of this world. Titled Mercury, it’s the latest release from Brighton-based alternative act The Tainted.
Taken off their upcoming EP, Mercury is as peculiar as the planet. It has short bursts of energy, rocky moments, but progressively builds to a crescendo of guitar riffs and explosive drums. You’ll question your existence, the world that we live in, and its inhabitants while listening to this song.
Music is a powerful tool for expressing thoughts about love, addiction, and remorse. Mercury is unknown; it needs to be explored and examined multiple times to understand its intention. This isn’t any regular shoegaze and alternative song; it’s a piece of art. Play it in a gallery, and it will be a worldwide attraction. Flocks of people will line up to discover its beauty.
Luckily, you won’t have to because Independent Music News is premiering it today. Play it now and explore Mercury.
