Projekt sign Mercury's Antennae

US darkwave label Projekt Records have announced the signing of San Francisco-based ethereal act Mercury's Antennae for the band's début album 'A Waking Ghost Inside'. The album will be available as a limited edition CD release as well as a digital download.

Comprised of vocalist Dru Allen (This Ascension, Mirabilis) and multi-instrumentalist Erick R. Scheid (Translucia), the band’s sound is distinctly reminiscent of ‘90s-era Projekt acts. Ranging from the heavy moodiness and guitar drone of Lycia to the unadorned acoustic beauty of Love Spirals Downwards to the passionate rock of This Ascension, the duo also draws on ambient and tribal influences, contemporary electronica, the sweet melodic pop of 4AD, and the blissful guitar noise of bands like Curve.
