The Last Dinner Party deliver their third single ‘My Lady of Mercy’

The Last Dinner Party are continuing to show what the fuss is all about, with the release of their third single, ‘My Lady of Mercy’.

The Last Dinner Party

Produced alongside James Ford (who has credits as mighty as Arctic Monkeys, Blur and Depeche Mode, to name a few), the track has already become a live favourite – and, trust me, there’s a few of them to choose from.

‘My Lady of Mercy’ follows the release of singles ‘Nothing Matter’ and ‘Sinner’, which collectively have garnered them almost three-quarters of a million monthly listeners on Spotify alone.

Have a listen to their emphatic new alt-rock single via its monochromatic video below, which was directed by the band alongside Harv Frost and Dora Paphides.

Describing the new track, the all-female band have explained in their typically astute manner that: “‘My Lady of Mercy’ is about being a girl. A girl looking up at a painting of Joan of Arc for the first time and thinking that she looks so brave and so beautiful that she wants to kiss her. And maybe she also wants to kiss the girl who stands next to her in the school choir.

“We are expanding the world of The Last Dinner Party to encompass a darker, heavier atmosphere.

“The lyrics explore the anguish of a teenage crush that can only be described through the bloody, carnal language of religious experience, as the soundworld takes cues from Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey and Roxy Music.”

The Last Dinner Party have also been making huge waves on the live scene, helped by some of their immense showings at the likes of Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, End of the Road and more.

They’ve also had support slots across the summer, opening for Lana Del Rey, Florence & The Machine, and First Aid Kit. Not bad going that.

And if you haven’t already, you’ll have a chance to catch them live yourself before the year’s out, with some remaining shows still available throughout the year, and their tour support of Hozier across UK and Europe. 

Recently, the band also announced a particularly special show at London’s Roundhouse, set for 1 February 2024, with support coming from Heartwormsvisit the venue’s site for more details and to buy tickets.
