Automatic Savoir is the second release from this unsigned Pittsburgh trio. While this time around, Mercury might have just an appetizer with just a 5 song EP, there’s clearly enough here to wet some major label’s appetite. Soaring layered guitars back the intense vocals of Justin Morris. Perhaps the most impressive track is “Beautiful” the second track on the EP, showcasing spiritually inspired lyrics, behind a beautifully arranged song. The song soars from verse to chorus almost seamlessly, a rare trait for unsigned acts. The EP then swings into “Heal” and “Forever” two rocking tracks, that nicely compliment Morris’ vocals. The EP closes with a stunning acoustic version of “The Beautiful”. This EP only further solidifies that Mercury is on the rise.
