Mermaidens reveal a second track off their highly anticipated new release Look Me in the Eye, out September 6. Riding electric guitar and bass loops in ‘Millennia’, Mermaidens disguise confronting abstractions on modern-day connection and communication in a deceptively upbeat track. Mermaidens dismantle the idea of ‘exterior masks’ created to exist online, calling falsehood by its name in the chilling line “hallucinations rule your world.”
“I wanted us to explore the mess of feelings I have around this twisted intersection of social media, identity, privacy, and a warped sense of reality,” co-frontwoman Lily West explains. “The hole of hunger that a social feed leaves in your mind; you should be a better version of yourself, you should be younger and more successful, busier, and you should share all this so everyone knows.”
Home fans! Following a hard hitting 7” single tour earlier this year, Mermaidens are set to play The Others Way 2019 on August 30. Run through the tracklisting of their new album, along with old favourites!
The band have also announced two Australian shows following BigSound in early September, plus European and UK dates later that month. For full details check out the posters below!
