UNVEIL NEW VIDEO FOR ‘MERCY’
“Into the realms of genre-fluid and unique” – The Most Radicalist
Closely following the release of their new single, Maltese electro-pop outfit OXYGYN have shared the brand new video for ‘Mercy’.
The new video continues from 2020’s ‘Wicked White Lies’, a portrayal of how society deals with social issues in which individuals are made vulnerable, as frontman Kurt Abela details: “We become angered by a social cause when it first emerges, but we are quick to break it down within our own minds and forget. Instead, we focus on our own personal issues, and are not able to overcome them.
This video acts as a wake-up call to society that the social issues hinted at throughout the video are still present and need their due attention.”
Abstractly focussing on the complex paradigms of humanity; OXYGYN, formed of sibling vocal duo Katia and Kurt, with Zack on guitars and Funky Monkey on production strive to leave their unique mark on the pop music scene – aiming to encourage their listeners to not only hear their music, but to also sit back and reflect.
Propelled by an addictive electronic beat, ‘Mercy’ is the band’s melancholic, yet punchy sixth single release since their 2015 inception; heavily led by Katia and Kurt’s captivating duelling vocals.
The track was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Peter Borg at Malta’s Railway Studios, and as frontman Kurt explains, revolves around themes of anger and vulnerability: “‘Mercy’ abstractly focuses on the narrative of an individual who trusts another enough to be vulnerable, and then has this same vulnerability used against them”.
Amassing a total of 10,000 streams on Soundcloud alone in 2020, and landing the top spot on the PRS Malta Top 10 Airplay Chart with fourth and fifth singles ‘Venom’ and ‘Wicked White Lies’, the band are now setting their sights on a UK breakthrough for their punchy, electronic-led indie-pop.
