Eryn Allen Kane “Have Mercy”

Eryn Allen Kane is ready to step out with a new solo project and above is the premiere of the first single with the Austin Vesely-directed video for “Have Mercy”. The song is a beautiful, soulful record that stood out to me because EAK straight up belted some of the high notes out of the park.

The lines, “Prayin for a sense of direction, prayin for love and protection” before the repetition of the song title really stood out to me too. Get to know one of The Social Experiment’s standout vocalists as Chicago boasts yet another talented up and coming artist prime to spread her own wings.

The video, directed by Heart of the City, mixes some scenes of just the two with them also in an animated, stop motion world. It’s hard to describe really so just watch, and be further engaged by Saba’s ever-changing deliveries and EAK’s pleasant vocals on the chorus.
