Merpire kicks off 2020 with ‘Heavy Feeling’
‘Heavy Feeling’ is a snippet of a day, waking up in an anxious headspace and wanting it to end as soon as it starts; finding distractions and avoiding people by taking back streets. It’s a common and isolating feeling, but one that Merpire is learning to confront through her music.
“I write music to get those thoughts out of my head so that they seem like less of a reality I’ve created and more just thoughts that will pass. This song is more straight-up lyrically, melodically, production-wise than previous releases. Straight to the point of ‘anxiety is shit so I’m going to write a loud, strummy song to get it out’.”
