Indian Summer is the third and most adventurous single from Mercury Rising in 2020. The song hinges around the idea that sometimes from the darkest places, there comes a second wind and another chance to get it right. The concept started with a film about mountain biking, which had particularly stunning and emotive visuals and an underlying message about living your life in the moment. In a nutshell, Indian Summer is about an Indian Summer. Just when you think the beauty and warmth of summer is gone and the colder months are closing in, the world may surprise you with an unexpected return to the things you were starting to miss and a chance to relive it all, if only for a brief moment in time!
With a rapidly increasing following and a reputation for extremely energetic and exciting performances, Mercury Rising are quickly becoming a driving force in a new era of Hard Rock. Taking influence from bands such as Mr Big, Extreme and Van Halen, the band have crafted their own branded sound which is easily recognisable and solid in delivery.
Mercury Rising was formed in 2012 by four friends ready to take their next step in music and create something truly unique. In it’s early inception, the band was a total melting pot of styles, but this quickly became narrowed down to what you hear today; Full throttle, technical and hook-laden Rock with appreciative nods to metal, funk and prog. In 2020, Mercury Rising are stronger than ever and with a whole host of songs ready to take to the studio and release to the world and a solemn vow to bring unadulterated joy to every stage, the sky’s the limit!
The past few years have seen Mercury Rising play a whole host of shows at venues including The Underworld, Big Red, Nambucca, Hope & Ruin and many more as well as embarking on two UK tours. They have become well known in London and surrounding areas for their prowess as a live band, be it as a headline act or supporting bigger bands.
