IYE Music Presents Mercy Kelly, The Avenues & Parlours

8 July @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm


In Your Ears Music is back with 3 more artists to get in your ears!

Mercy Kelly
The Greater Manchester 5-piece formed during the winter of 2019; channeling a stirring mix of Chameleons-esque guitar sounds and stadium sized melodies. Originally starting out as an acoustic songwriting partnership between frontman Jack Marland and lead guitarist Adam Bridge, the group gradually morphed into its current incarnation with new members Joel Buckley, Leon Hepke and Jack Brogan joining on drums, bass and rhythm guitar respectively.

Setting a vision from day one was key, and after writing an albums worth of material the band spent the last few months of 2020 recording their debut run of singles at Manchester’s Vibe Studios, homeplace down the years to legendary bands including ‘James’, ‘Inspiral Carpets’ and more recently ‘The Blinders’. Working with well acclaimed producer Dean Glover proved to be a match made in heaven for a band with influences deeply rooted in the Chorus Wave sounds of 80’s suburbia. ‘Anymore’ acutely blends the gothic and jangly influences of that era whilst announcing the bold artistic intentions of the band; the reinvention of romanticism in a 21st century guise.

The band now approach 2023 with the intention of making a fresh statement with their music. Linking up with Ady Hall and Lee McCarthy at Sugarhouse Studios has expanded the sonic palette of the band and unlocked sharper pop sensibilities.



The Avenues
“They’re definitely a band from Hull” – Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 6 Music The Avenues are a four-piece indie-rock band from Hull. Coming together in late 2018, they have already played some huge gigs including selling out venues in their hometown, playing the main stage at Humber Street Sesh Festival and supporting the likes of Spector, The K’s and The Royston Club and are now gigging regularly around the country. Their first two EPs marked them out as serious ones-to-watch and new singles “Every Morning” and “Admit Nothing” take their operation to the next level…




Parlours are a 5-piece band based in North-West England. Fronted by Tom Gaskell (Vocals), Jack Swanwick (Guitar), Kane Partington (Guitar), Tom Jones (Bass) & Joe Dursley (Drums).

Our debut single ‘Hacienda’ is available for streaming now. Hacienda was recorded at The Motor Museum (Liverpool) with SoundMusicAwards producer of the year Ben Harper.
