After releasing her debut EP, ‘Endless Chatter’ in June 2018, produced by Andy Bull and Alex Bennison, It wasn’t long before notice was being taken of Merpire and her intelligent songwriting. Genres overlap from the powerful, pitch-bending synth opener, ‘Holding Breath’, produced by Andy Bull to the stripped-back, heart-breaking closer, ‘For The Best’, produced by Alex Bennison.
The sophisticated record is backed-up beautifully with her band’s captivating live performance, piquing the interests of industry professionals and respected musicians.
After selling out Melbourne’s The Gasometer’s upstairs band room in August, the EP Launch was quickly moved to the main room to meet the overwhelming demand for a spot in the crowd. Described as refreshing and clever, the rollercoaster of emotion that is Merpire’s music is proving to be addictive with showcases at Brisbane’s Big Sound and there’s no sign of it slowing down.
