From emotional rollercoasters to full immersive, indie-rock arrangements, Merpire is the musical brainchild of Riannon Atkinson-Howatt. 

Conjuring magical moments in both the studio and on stage, Merpire and her predominantly female line-up have supported the likes of Julia Jacklin, Last Dinosaurs, Angie McMahon and Didirri.

Her latest single ‘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 Rhiannon is learning to confront through her music.
