MERCY WEISS – SINGLE REVIEW

Mercy Weiss – Evil Baby 
Mercy Weiss - Evil Baby


Release Date: Out Now

New Yorkers Mercy Weiss and accomplice Christopher Pellnat are, like most of the right-thinking world, pissed off about the new ‘man’ in charge at the White House. Unlike most of the right-thinking world, they’ve combined a beautifully lo-fi indie track with some news footage to make a fantastically endearing protest song. ‘Evil Baby’ combines the lo-fi appeal of the Lovely Eggs with the sultry vocals of Monroe and Piaf to create something that is both enticing and unnerving which is no easy balance. A pulsing bass and simple beat are accompanied by some sleazy guitar and Weiss’ smooth, seductive vocal. This isn’t pure anger but it’s a nod and a wink of “I’m watching you” to the President. We’re all watching, intently.
