This is turning out to be a great week for discovering some new dream power pop. First we had the new single from The Primitives from our friends at Girlsville Records and today for the second time we have our record of the day from one of my favorite new dream pop bands, Mercury Girls. For those paying attention we had ‘Golden’ as our Record of the day back in October 2015.

Philadelphia’s Mercury Girls are one of the most talked-about new bands in ages. Featuring members of Literature, Little Big League and Pet Milk, Mercury Girls have a gorgeous, layered sound that combines post-punk dynamics with soaring/jangling guitars, fantastic melodies and expertly-arranged tunes. Their recent single “Ariana” turned a lot of heads, and their two contributions contained herein should make us all quite excited for their in-progress debut album.
