Mel Bryant and The Mercy Makers genre blending indie rock on "In My Head"

























In My Head by Nashville based (by way of Philly and New York) Mel Bryant feels like alt folk rock on high with maybe a faint tinge of country and even a kind of 80's new wave pop buried in there too. Definitions aside, the indie band's name sake and lead singer-songwriter Mel Bryant (vocals, bass) serves up a clean pretty vocal performance with a lot of emotional bite assisted by Conor McCarthy (lead guitar, organ), Aaron Hicks (guitar, vocals) and Brendan Bird (drums).  The band is working on a 2019 debut album.
