Drawing inspiration from Kojo’s Ghanaian family in South London and Barney’s Northern Soul upbringing in Huddersfield, MRCY have today unveiled their second track ‘Flowers In The Mourning’.

The new track pays tribute to their musical and cultural roots, blending a propulsive Afrobeats rhythm with aspects of Northern Soul, putting a positive spin on an affecting meditation on love and loss.

Introducing ‘Flowers In Mourning’, Kojo comments: ‘The opening voice is my Mum singing a song that my Grandmother wrote for my family as a kind of fun nursery rhyme to sing to the kids. All my family know it. My Grandmother is no longer with us and when I think about her I feel a mix of joy and sadness. ‘Flowers In Mourning’ is also about the loss of things that kept you at peace, and it reflects on the state of our surroundings that contribute to feeling like shxt mentally’.

Set to join Black Puma’s on tour later this month, MRCY have also announced their debut headline show at London’s Lower Third venue.
