Quotes and Buzz:
"New York’s Mercury Landing have touched upon a unique fusion of space-rock, synthesizer fueled electronica and old school jam that is both progressive and comfortably familiar. The group’s first full length album, Eyes Against the Sky, is an enjoyable mash of fast paced instrumental passages and more heartfelt, introspective vocal moments." --Mike Greenhaus, Relix Magazine
"Eyes Against the Sky is the perfect soundtrack to a key party—swinging music for swingers with lots of funky guitar and keyboard action."--Abby Aronofsky, Penthouse Magazine
"Eyes Against the Sky is an eclectic mix of funk and rock music. It is a great listen from front to back, which is a rarity in today's music world." --John Pasquale, Booking and Event Planning for Hard Rock Cafe
"If Mercury Landing isn’t already on your iPod or in your CD player then you are going to be left behind. With funky beats and choreographed instrumentation, they are what the Dave Mathews Band was before they hit the commercial market. If you are in college and looking for something to call your own, I suggest Mercury Landing." --Liberty Devitto, drummer 30 years for Billy Joel
