The Australian singer uses music to describe her own personal struggles with mental health, relationships, and adjustment into adulthood. Her raw, dark lyrics create a powerful contrast between the softness of her voice and the playfulness of the instruments, and her unapologetically candid emotions. Too Easy describes Merci, Mercy’s experiences of turmoil and struggle in relationships. The lyrics: “I take advantage of you”, and “I don’t know how to cope so I take it out on you” demonstrate how her mental health affects her relationships. Her genuine emotions are shown through the lyrics but are sung against colourful, contemporary pop music, creating a quirky and catchy song.
The six tracks on Is it me, or is it you? include the popular, most recent singles; Black Cloud and Into You, and they all demonstrate Merci, mercy’s ability to mix powerful emotion with edgy dance beats. Her authentic lyrics resonate with fans from all over the world and this artist’s success is only growing, after recently supporting popstar, Tai Verdes, on his debut Australia tour, and supporting performances with Flight Facilities, Hatchie, Matt Corby, and Jayda G. The star has surpassed sixteen million cumulative streams and was featured on Spotify’s RADAR emerging artists programme – she is certainly one to watch!
