I listen to the birds outside. I look at fishes in the sea jumping up the surface for some small flies. I’m free. Not because of the birds or the fishes, nor because I’m alive or dead. It’s because I’m Team Rockit. And so are you. -- Merely
I’m Michael Foucault. So are you. I formulate my experience in a way that gives humans certain understandings. Then I suddenly become Beyoncé. And right after that Alan Watts. One day I wake up as Sara Ahmed and at the same time I’m out touring with my band ABBA. Meanwhile I’m turning into Aung San Suu Kyi and Jeanne d’Arc. I love and respect myself and everyone else and don’t know what I will experience next. -- Merely
I’m a bee. So are you. I lookout through the window but nothing’s there except a foggy haze nestled in distortion and pride. Insecurity rules this world I’m trapped in and when I fly everyone hides in slow motion. But without my existence the world would collapse. -- Merely
I’m a teenager. So are you. Life doesn’t matter if you’re not with me so we’re holding on together. We see the world through each other and wherever I am, there you are. I cannot die, unless you die with me. -- Merely
I’m an olive. So are you. I fall down to the ground and the whole world starts to shake. My olive family is still up there hanging in the tree. I miss the other olives. I created deep bonds to some of them. Especially those olives that raised me, and those who made me become the olive I am. -- Merely
I’m Merely. So are you. Today my second solo album Uncanny Valley is released and to celebrate this I give you a little story about you and me with a soundtrack. Thanks to GvB who’s letting me share this...
We're honored to debut one of the most beautiful releases of 2016, Merely's intensely emotional, post-apocalyptic new LP Uncanny Valley. It's a soaring triumph for the Swedish artist and Team Rockit member, one that evokes vivid windswept landscapes from an otherworldly dystopian future -- with references to mysterious biblical works of unknown origin, the darkest material known to man, and the record's overarching theme of feeling lost in that eerie, inescapable sensation first described by Masahiro Mori in the early '70s that now seems more ominously prescient than ever -- all while sounding like some perfect heavenly union of Enya's soothing, sanguine new age tones and towering, gleaming modern Swedish pop...
Sweden's Merely shares another soaring highlight from her beautiful new full-length Uncanny Valley, out one week from tomorrow on Sincerely Yours. Listen to "Yang", featuring jj, below + download it here.
