Single: Mercurial Man
Release Date: 26/05/17
Digitally Available: 01/06/17
Exactly a year go, I reviewed Luna Rosa‘s single “This One (High On The Groove)” just before it was released. The song was from their latest self-titled EP. Luna Rosa are an alternative indie rock band hailing from Corby, Northamptonshire. Recently I was very excited to hear that they were releasing a new single.
“Mercurial Man” is constructed with three moods, which makes the song a more interesting kind psychedelic-indie-rock’n’roll. The band show signs of a jazz influence or background which they have brought into indie rock. This is one of the elements that leads to the band being unique.
Luna Rosa has a “Mercurial Man” single release show on Saturday 27th May as well as many live shows through June. Check their website of Facebook page about the dates.
