With only a few short days left until the release of her EP no thank you, no thanks, and the same day as the first of four sold-out Oxford Art Factory debut shows, Sydney based songstress merci, mercy is excited to present her new single ‘Tequila & Lemonade’.  As with her previously released tracks, ‘Fucked Myself Up’‘Fall Apart’ and ‘Something You Like’, the effervescent new song arrives with another quirkily animated lyric video from Bianca Bosso.


If merci, mercy’s latest release ‘Something You Like’ forms the heart of her debut EP, then ‘Tequila & Lemonade’ is definitely the party-starter – a euphoric, hands-in-the-air anthem with plenty of the bite. The song was produced with Edwin White (Vance Joy) and Joel Quartermain (G Flip, Meg Mac) and taps into thoughts of escapism.
“’Tequila & Lemonade’ took the longest of all songs on the EP to write. It touches on similar themes to ‘Fucked Myself Up,’ it’s about feeling trapped in your own head and looking for ways to escape and feel confident.” – merci, mercy
Released this Friday, merci, mercy’s brilliant six track EP is a kaleidoscopic alt-pop journey through anxiety and self-examination, swirling and evolving as its mood and vibe swings through exultation to darkness in equal measure. In her music, she confronts inner demons, self-doubt, and the cynicism associated with love.
“It turns out all the songs are to do with relationships,” she explains. “With other people, with alcohol, with my anxiety, and with myself. It was quite a therapeutic process for me to write these songs and I hope they might connect with people who have been through similar experiences.”
Sydney based fans will have the opportunity to see merci, mercy performing her debut live shows this week and next, as she kicks off a sold-out run at the Oxford Art Factory tonight.
