EP PREMIERE: Scam Avenue “Mercury”

Scam Avenue

“Do you want to know my name?” teases Devery Doleman, as the lead single “Mercury” creeps in between your ears. Their name – is Scam Avenue. Doleman is one third of the dark electro-pop trio, joined by Tara Chacón (backing vocals and synth) and Lawrence Kim (backing vocals and guitar).

Made in Brooklyn, they tend to dress in black, and fans of New Order and Brian Eno will severely creep on this. The four-track EP, engineered by Pete Cafarella (Shy Child, Passion Pit, Ryn Weaver) is moody, dreamy, and intelligently intricate all the while managing to be a rather relaxing listen. The tracks create a coherent package leaving you craving the eventual full-length – just like a good EP should.

Personal favorite track: “Spies.”
