Murder It Sweetly
Out of a murder black town car it sweeps; the music is bouncing off mirrors, cutting through the concrete and the collapse. . . The truth it sings, 'love can kill this way, under cover of the night. . . like the swing and the sway of a butcher knife.' These are the desperate deeds of the passion killers - to murder it sweetly - beyond the daylight. . . Like concrete and collapse - Portland, OR's Black Mercies make music out of romance and rubble, ones and zeros, fever and fate. . .soulfully stirring and infused with the cosmopolitan swagger of Roxy Music and the rapt melodrama of contemporaries like Muse and the Bravery, this 4-piece post-rock outfit's introspective and honest approach puts the emphasis on a classic yet unique songwriting style that emanates rock - complete with passion fits and the raw sweetness of hope.
