LITTLE MERCURY: First Thought / Best Thought: 10”

Little Mercury may have an Elvis Costello And The Attractions obsession. Not an entirely bad thing, but when the songs lack Declan’s pop hook genius, you have a wholly forgettable parcel of tracks. “Come up Twice” might be a saving grace and may even find its way on to a mix tape or podcast. It’s also the shortest track and one out of six just isn’t a good average. The guitarist caught mid-leap on the back of the jacket is the most exciting part of the release. White vinyl.
