I hope you’re enjoying the stacked up posts while I’m away. Next up is the eponymous Merchandise, with their latest offering from the upcoming, After The End, the stunning, Green Lady. Layered in nostalgic synth tones and guitar riffs, Carson’s vocals are at their most recognisable here, as you can understand nearly all the lyrics! (If you listen closely). The vocal clarity isn’t the only achievement though, as Merchandise have finally found a way to mellow out, and still produce a killer track in the process, with a traditional guitar breakdown to seize the 80’s influence the band are currently under, Merchandise sound more like The Smiths than a ‘pop’ version of Joy Divison.
P.S watch out for 2:49, something, questionable flies across *hint hint*.
