Mel Bryant & The Mercy Makers¬†are an act that really look to be coming into their own on latest single ‘Never Thought’. Channeling the energy of contemporaries such as Pinegrove and Sorority Noise, their nuanced emo sound has a kind of trudging, gritty quality that makes for an immersive and all-encompassing listening experience.

Mel Bryant’s forceful delivery and personal lyrics weave a tale of crisis, with the track serving almost as a cathartic release of the pissed off feelings and emotions the singer holds. From the grungy chugging guitars to Mel’s distinctive attitude, there is enough about this track to see it really carve out its own niche.
