The B-Side: Joseph of Mercury

With “Pretty Blonde Boy” Joseph of Mercury give us a smooth, swooning and crooning indie rock number that mixes in a bubbling synth bass line and strings to create a perfect backdrop for the Bryan Ferry / Morrissey style vocals. Even the lyrics feel like vintage Smiths with lines like “There are those you will only know for a short time, because bright lights burn faster.” If Moz’s more recent lines he’s dropped in interviews and online have you feeling conflicted about listening to his classic work let this song be the guilt free pleasure to fill that spot in your playlist.
