Grace Mitchell Makes Her NYC Headlining Debut at Mercury Lounge

August 1st, 2017

Portland, Ore., singer-songwriter and mult-instrumentalist Grace Mitchell (above, peforming “Kids (Ain’t All Right)”) quickly earned comparisons to Halsey, Lorde and Lana Del Rey when, still in her mid-teens, she put out a pair of EPs, Design (stream it below) and Raceday (stream it below), in 2014-15, filled with electronic- and R&B-fueled pop. The genre-bending musician has recently been releasing singles, and with a debut long-player due to arrive later this year, she makes her New York City headlining debut tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge. Local electro-pop duo Frances Rose open the show.


Hana Plays the Late Show at Mercury Lounge on Friday Night

June 15th, 2016

Singer-songwriter and producer Hana burst onto the scene last year with the single “Clay,” which earned her shout-outs from Lorde and Grimes and moved Nylon to proclaim, “Meet the Internet’s newest music obsession” and that the song “was an intimate, stripped-down piece of synth-pop perfection, with a hook that burrows itself into your head and refuses to get out.” Of course, it turns out that Hana (above, doing “Chimera”) wasn’t new at all. Hana Pestle had been releasing EPs since 2008, including this year’s five-track self-titled effort (stream it below). She’s toured with Grimes and Lana Del Rey and now you can see her play Mercury Lounge on Friday night. Electro-pop duo Frances Rose open the show.

April 26th, 2016

Up-and-coming singer-songwriter Brika grew up in Miami with a wide variety of musical influences. Her debut album, Voice Memos (stream it below), came out about a year-and-a-half ago, and it features her powerful, sultry voice. The LP is “eclectic, an impressive and fully formed debut record from a talented young artist,” according to Indie Current. And per Breaking and Entering, “One thing is for certain, this isn’t the last you’ll hear of her. She’s definitely got the talent to take things to another level, and this is a fitting introduction.” You can introduce yourself to Brika (above, performing “Gold”) tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge. Electro-pop duo Frances Rose open the show.
