Still riding high from his phenomenal successes over this past year, mehro returns today with contemplative new track, ‘parasite’.
Showcasing lush, layering strings and atmospherics over a driving acoustic guitar, the song finds mehro reflecting on his personal ‘parasite’, while also confronting those dark places he normally keeps hidden behind ‘silly faces’.
“parasite” is the story of how something so grotesque can appear to be so beautiful; a toxic relationship that feeds off the hope of the unsuspecting heart. I wanted to create a sonic world that embodied the illusion of that deceptive beauty, and to tell that story uncompromised. To me this is alchemy.
As far as expectations go, mehro consistently delivers some of the most stunning indie sounds to emerge from the US right now.
Latest release ‘like you’re god’ is minimal yet primal in essence. Featuring skittering beats and half-whispered lyrics, the track almost enjoys languishing in the bodily desires mehro sings about.
“This song speaks into existence a side of me that I don’t share with most people. I am very private. So this song feels particularly gut wrenching to release. I feel exposed, vulnerable and nervous. That’s how I know I need to let it go.”
American breakout star mehro unveils his latest single ‘not alone’ today, along with the release of highly awaited project ‘SKY ON FIRE’.
The song feels hazy and melancholy in equal parts, and further establishes this talent as someone who has a truly unique take on music-making. On the project, mehro says:
“With the Australian fires, the murders of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and countless others, along with a global pandemic, we found ourselves in the middle of an environmental and cultural disaster. It was on top of us and all around us. With so much fear burning through our communities, our homes, our minds and our hearts, it seemed as though there was nothing we could do to put it out. Like a sky on fire. It was the California fires, while seeing the ashes in the air and the blazing red sun, that inspired the concept for the project.”
