TUNE merci, mercy - merci, mercy 'Fucked Myself Up' single (Liberation Records)
Announces debut single ‘Fucked Myself Up’ impacting 1st May via Liberation Records
'Fucked Myself Up' is a smart and disarming introduction to 19-year old Sydney based singer/songwriter merci, mercy. A bold debut, the single perfectly showcases the young artist's wit, personality and attitude, wrapped up in undeniably catchy production. The track was produced by writer/producer duo Edwin White (Vance Joy, Fergus James) and Joel Quartermain (G Flip, Oh Pep, Meg Mac).
As a teenager, merci lived in Beijing and Thailand, before moving back to Sydney. There she lived between regional Jindabyne and the coastal beachside of Dolls Point. In 2018 she put a little song online called 'Be', which resulted in her signing a record deal with Liberation Records (home to Julia Jacklin, Vance Joy, Mansionair), landing a management team and is now ready to release her first body of music at the age of 19. With the release of ‘Fucked Myself Up’ and more exciting news to arrive, merci, mercy is all set to take on the international stage.
An intimate portrayal of everyday drama, exuberance and regret, merci explains "Fucked Myself Up is about dependence on alcohol, it gave me the confidence to be able to talk to people. I was getting fucked up on purpose in order to allow myself to be around people I didn't know. My goal is to make music that talks openly about mental health, so it's as normal as talking about what you're eating for dinner. Fucked Myself Up is me saying yes, I have a problem but I'm doing my best, so leave me alone."
