Camden has been no stranger to breeding ear striking and imagination stirring artists over the decades and so it continues with THE MERCANARIES, a four strong indie/punk band. Creating a sound as addictive to feet and hips as it is to ears, the band has been billed as “the most exciting band to come out of London for years.”
Comparisons to the likes of Happy Mondays and The Stone Roses have also been laid upon the quartet yet their music is undoubtedly unique, continually luring an increasingly growing and loyal following as The Mercanaries dynamically spice up the capital’s live scene.
Performing at one of FFRUK’s Reggae Punk Nights at The Dublin Castle, the band took time out before playing to talk with FFRUK TV’s SEGS JENNINGS (Ruts DC) and TARA REZ (The Duel). Introductions led to the band offering an insight into the band from their beginnings to the raw and organic essence of their sound, and the rewards of occasional made-up lines to lyrics to hopes ahead. With a thrilling slice of the band live on the night in the song, “Hard to Please”; this is The Mercanaries!
