The Wild Mercury Sound - Hope There's Someone

I was fortunate to get an email the other day from The Wild Mercury Sound, one of my favorite up and coming indie bands from London, with their cover of Anthony and Johnson’s “Hope There’s Someone.”

Their cover infuses the original with a bit of a folk feel beginning quietly with mournful vocals and a single guitar strumming softly, but the track builds quite nicely as the rest of the band joins in with some great backing vocals and even a bit of experimental rock thrown in at the end.

In particular, the song’s ending really showcases the band’s impressive vocal range and ability to harmonize.

Have a look below and definitely keep these lads on your radar.
