New Sounds: Mercy Street – Let Me Live

mercystreetletmelive

Former Rufio singer, Scott Sellers, starts new band called Mercy Street and completely blows the lid off the pop punk genre. What his band had accomplished in the past decade with Rufio is turned up to 11 on this new full length under the Mercy Street name, and then some. Picking right up where Rufio left off on their last proper full length “Anybody Out There” but heading in a more edgy, less “commercial” direction. Songs like “Building Tolerance”, “Out of the Question”, “Guilty Conscience”, “Caught by the Wind”, “Die Young”, and the great closer “We See the Ending”, show the band at their strongest, most captivating. This band hits you over the head with a two ton hammer of alluring pop-punk and doesn’t relent for the entirety of “Let Me Live”. If you’ve been on the hunt for a straight forward, fast, and melodic, slightly aggressive, pop punk record with a bite, look no further than Scott and his band or ruffians called Mercy Street. Recommended for fans of old Slick Shoes, Rufio, old old AFI, New Found Glory, Much the Same. Listen here:
