"Mercury Rising" by pop-country artist Tezza is a country jam with an otherworldly twist - she brings a pop flair to the single full of spacey imagery and futuristic effects.
Her lyrics detail feelings of immediately clicking with someone - a "cosmic" connection. "It's like our stars are aligning / I can feel the mercury rising." It's full of themes that are out of this world in a literal sense - themes of outer space remain prominent, and her metaphor-filled lyrics fit perfectly with the catchy track full of edgy electric guitar riffs and electronic effects. Her lyrics, sung with conviction, share the message that there's no point in fighting a connection with someone.
The single is the second release Tezza has put out, following her debut single "Around
the Truth" in January of this year which earned features on CMT, All Access, and iHeart Radio. Since her move to Nashville, Tennessee she's played some of Music City's biggest venues such as the Bluebird and the annual CMA Fest. "Mercury Rising" was featured on Spotify's Breakout Country editorial playlist - it's available to stream and download everywhere now.
