An impeccable production with the liquid silver of that lead vocal dripping through the sparse triplet-driven punctuations of the rhythm pocket.

With a melodic baritone and a brooding pop sensibility, the feeling here is tinged with a theatrical affect: the elegant grandstanding of a passionate love. The theme, an appropriation of affection as the font of creativity that is missing from the doldrums of daily life.

Truly, we can access a life’s worth of value from a single connection with someone else. Over and Over, the latest single from Toronto’s Joseph of Mercury, is a swaying soul-bed for two lovers to adorn. It’s an impeccable production with the liquid silver of that lead vocal dripping through the sparse triplet-driven punctuations of the rhythm pocket.

It’s about just trying to make it through all those waves, those beautiful & those destructive, & to get back to that shore, to that acceptance & certainty, knowing that despite it all, we can truly offer ourselves to another person. – Joseph of Mercury
