Hailing from Oakland, CA, Why These Coyotes embody a model day Pink Floyd vibe with their track ‘Vicious Mercury’. Although the track has a wonderful, laid back Californian feel, the subject matter is poignant.
This song was inspired by people on power trips, thinking they’re above everyone else. When given a certain amount of power people tend to get carried away. It’s also kind of about feeling stuck in life, just going through the motions, and how some people have to carry around a lot of pain on top of that.
