21-year-old Bristolian MERCY’S CARTEL latest single, ‘Feel My Vibe’ discusses substance abuse, youth culture and mental health over a smooth refreshing take on soul music.
Speaking of her single, Mercy says “Music gave me a way to speak about important social issues from my own point of view and control my own narrative.”
The track is taken from her debut EP ‘Vibes Cartel’ released last Friday. Combining afrobeat, trap, hip-hop, R&B and neo-soul, the project snapshots the singer-songwriter and producer after her 2017 hospitalization and departure from university after experiencing hate crime.
Mercy is already impacting the industry, having featured on BBC Introducing with her demo ‘Nick of Time’ as well as starting her own student music agency, and being voted third in Bristol, in the Barclay’s & The Tab’s Future 100 Women to Watch 2017.
