Sounds of Savannah Stopover 2016 #9: Mercury Girls

A funny thing has been happening on the way to SXSW, y'all. A whole lot of bands have been making a pitstop in Savannah, Georgia, on their way to the musical motherland of Austin. And the city best known for its history is making waves with this here shindig known as the Savannah Stopover, about to enjoy its six iteration. My head has been turned enough to give y'all some recommendations from said Stopover for your listening pleasure. And if you happen to be free from March 10-12, maybe you ought to just venture on down to Savannah for yourself.

Pretty pretty noise is coming out of Philly, y'all. The trio making said prettiness would be Mercury Girls, and may I just say how smitten I am. They call themselves "indiepop-art jangle," and I'd agree whilst adding some major dream pop to the equation. Charming boy-girl vocals pair with perfectly effervescent guitar play to delightful effect, making this three-piece a must. A single release on the divine Slumberland label is forthcoming, and I'm super excited about it. As should you be.
