The blinding success of “Perennial” was followed by the globally penetrating Flume collab “Rushing Back” (#2 on Triple J’s Hottest 100); and a handful of chart topping post album singles. The breezily melodic “All The Pretty Girls” scales down the electronica and turns up the folk-pop; while singles “The Way That You Love Me”, “Lie To Me” and “Temper” showed the start of the next exhilarating chapter in the Vera Blue Odyssey.
Now comes Vera Blue’s sophomore album, “Mercurial”.
Though her previous work was informed by heartbreak and pain, Mercurial is the sound of Pavey evolving as both a human and an artist, facing the unexpected ability to change, and discovering herself at the height of her powers. It’s the realisation that emotions are a superpower, it’s harnessing the negative to discover the positives, it’s embracing the mercurial nature of sentiment, and it’s finding that comfort in the discomfort of evolving.
