"CINCFA REVIEW @ SplendidEzine.com"

"Catastrophe Is No Cause For Alarm suggests that the band put things like learning their instruments and honing their songwriting above any other considerations. Further, it shows that their wait paid off; little about their confident, dreamy-sounding indie rock
betrays their novice status." -Reviewed by: Matthew Pollesel, SplendidEzine.com - Matthew Pollesel (SplendidEzine.com)


"CINCFA REVIEW"

"...Wes seems to be calling the spirits of Morrissey, Jeff Buckley and Conor Oberst...and although the influence is clear, his voice more than holds its own." -The Deli Magazine - The Deli Magazine


"CINCFA REVIEW @ copperpress.com"

"A perfect accessory for a road trip or a reunion of old friends, its intelligent pop sensibility and seasoned, less-is-more philosophy hauntingly hangs in the air..." -copperpress.com - copperpress.com

Bio

The Mercury Stars is an unlikely blend of influences and styles that shouldn't make sense, but do. Sonic explorations result in songs sounding something like Grand Lee Buffalo's melodiousness with a touch of dark Euro-pop a la The Cure or Echo & The Bunnymen. Guitar pedals bend and distort, bass and drums push and shove, Wurli-Juno textures drape - all pulsing beneath bittersweet lyrics, creating songs that are a dream-like tapestry of sound.
