Bio

Mercians are a 5 piece band based in Melbourne. They play a fusion of post-rock, uplifting grooves blended with husky yet soulful vocals. A journey unfolds in each song from dark and moody to uplifting soundscapes.

Starting out several years ago as a quartet, four became five in 2012 as Jerome Green took over lead vocals which spurred an overhaul of the band’s sound. Earnest groups like The Maccabees, The Neighbourhood, Radiohead and Foals would become chief influences and song structures became more complex.

It means that Mercians feels like a fresh ambition while still sounding
like a gang of friends that have been playing together forever. In 2014 Mercians’ first release ‘The Island’ acquired Triple J Unearthed airplay. Accompanying their second single release ‘Your Words’ they toured their debut EP of the same name, which involved shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Following the success of the tour ‘Your Words’ was featured on Rormix; a UK based app which showcases new music worldwide.
