BOOTS - Mercy

  • Artist: BOOTS

  • Album: None (Promo Single)

Since he hit the scene earlier this year, singer/songwriter BOOTS has created buzz using the time-honored tactic of never showing his face. The mask has to come off eventually, though, and the singer-songwriter and beatsmith decided that his latest video single was the perfect opportunity to let it slip. While Jordy Asher's official visuals will be, for obvious reasons, the front-page story, the audio component of Mercy is equally deserving of attention. Accompanied by a self-produced beat that builds from a spare verse groove to a distorted, rock-infused outro, the record boasts one of the catchiest melodies I've heard in a hot minute. This record is just a loosie, but we'll keep you posted on the Roc Nation buzzmaker's plans as we learn more.
