Video for "The Guides v.2" released
Jan 8 2015: Our first video! Check out Mercury's Antennae's etherwave song "The Guides v.2" (Directed by Erick r. Scheid w/Unit 13 Productions) This electronic-ambient version of the original track from on our debut album A Waking Ghost Inside is part of the 5-song, 30-minute EP The Guides released Jan 2015 (Projekt Records).
Greetings Dreamers -- after a busy summer exploring the PNW and performing in Seattle, Olympia, Portland and Eugene, Mercury's Antennae is back to work recording their third release. A few new songs were showcased that saw the band expressing a deeper, noisier side combined with their already ethereal sound: driving bass, fluid electronica, spacious 12-string guitars and Dru's earthy vox.
The new album may include 8-12 tracks and is definitely inspired by the lush and expansive landscape of the PNW.
The band is also currently working on a mini PNW tour in March of 2018.
Thank You the Pacific Northwest!
Mercury's Antennae has had a great time this spring performing Eugene, Portland and Seattle. Thanks to everyone who came out!
It was our pleasure to share our tour with Devoured by Flowers, as well as play with Golden Gardens and Stariana. Extra special thanks to Summer Bowman of the Machine in the Garden for her guest appearance in Portland!

My Summer as a Goth soundtrack!
2018 had some hard moments, but one thing we were excited to be a part of was the soundtrack for My Summer as a Goth, an independent film directed by Tara Johnson-Medinger that premiered on Halloween at the opening night of the 45th Northwest Filmmaker’s Festival.
It has been officially selected for multiple other festivals in the US and abroad... Bravo! So check the film’s official site for where you can catch it next.
