‘Lord Have Mercy’ is a certified toe-tapper, captivating attention with crisp, crunchy guitars and belting vocals from singer Nikolaus Bartunek. This style has allowed Picture Atlantic to utilise some of that emotional charm that’s welcomely seen in Brit-pop bands such as Hard-Fi and the recently-featured Dance a la Plage.
Saying that, the 3 piece hail from San Francisco, bringing a sun-kissed sheen to their tempo-consistent, charged rock. Whilst still wholly accessible, ‘Lord Have Mercy’ also pushes a bit further to fans of Queen of the Stone Age; people looking for something powerful and dynamic. Listen to this track, and listen to it loud.
