“The Mercutio sound brings its patented ‘feel-good melancholy’ to a new generation of pop fans” – Her Campus
These six exuberant performers felt an instant connection and teamed up to create a unique fusion of classic pop, soul and indie-rock. Their music is tied together lyrically by the group’s shared feelings about the struggles of being a teenager; injustice, love and angst. Powerful vocal harmonies, beautiful chord sequences and infectious rhythms, combined with bittersweet lyrics – your feet will want to dance, your heart will break.
