Tracks: Blood Cultures - Mercury Child
New Jersey's one man synth mountain, Blood Cultures, returns with latest track "Mercury Child".
Take two parts Neon Indian, add one part Youth Lagoon and you've got the wind swept cool of New Jersey native Blood Cultures. If anyone was wondering if his debut, "Indian Summer", was simply a flash in the pan, well, "Mercury Child" will allay those fears.
"Mercury Child" has all the earmarks of a synth-wave classic. It's reverb laden vocals, addictive horn squeaks and sugary sweet melodies are nothing short of brilliant. You'll have a job getting it out your head for a few days to come and you'll probably give it another spin by then, so good luck with that!
