For every mood


Formed to provide a soundtrack for their friend's avant-garde films, Mercury Rev's psychedelic indie rock has always maintained a cinematic beauty through their rise from underground oddballs to critically acclaimed outsiders. Their early transient line-ups gained stability when Flaming Lips guitarist Jonathan Donahue took over as front man in 1990, and shortly after they signed with British label Rough Trade to release debut album 'Yerself Is Steam' (1991). Though the album was well received, the label went bust and the band descended into chaos as original singer Dave Baker was sacked after an altercation with guitarist Sean 'Grasshopper' Mackowiack.

Out of the madness came the band's classic fourth album 'Deserter's Songs' (1998). Named Album of the Year by NME magazine, it brought them commercial success for the first time and produced the singles 'Goddess On a Highway' and 'Opus 40'. Cult indie heroes, they went on to release 'All Is Dream' (2001), 'The Secret Migration' (2005), 'Snowflake Midnight' (2008) and 'The Light in You' in 2015.
