Mercy Mercy Me.

TV On The Radio, the kingly art rock band of the past decade returns with a sudden single, “Mercy.” It kicks in right away. No hesitation. Vocalist Tunde Adebimpe is right there with the spitting hi-hats and grinding guitars. “I fell in love with professional evil on the day you left my side,” he sings.

There is a driving restlessness running through lyrically and rhythmically. It’s a sparse, gyrating rock and roll song from the dance floor of another life. “Mercy” is the group’s first new music since Nine Types Of Light in 2011. May this be the tip of an iceberg ready to melt and flood our ear holes.
