Galway City, County Galway
Mercury Mouth is an eclectic and powerful live band with strong, searing songwriting at its core and powered by a post-punk ethos and delicate gothic balladry. It’s the creation of songwriter and vocalist Ann-Marie Doyle collaborating with a band of extremely talented and creative musicians with decades of experience behind them collectively.
Over the last two years they have worked at meticulously crafting a collection of songs that spark and crackle with energy, with soaring heart and thinly veiled dark underpinnings, all the while retaining a tight musicality and a style that is uniquely ‘Mercury Mouth’. With unusual combinations of instrumentation and styles that sidestep any obvious genre placement, while at the same time, revealing fragments of influence and inspiration, from Nick Cave Patti Smith to Kate Bush, John Cale to Townes Van Zandt and many more.
