From the scaffolds of her acoustic beginnings Merpire has developed an established sound of eerie synths, cinematic flourishes, haunting melodies and beautifully written, chilling vocals. Working closely with musician and producer Andy Bull, her anticipated 2017 single ‘Holding Breath’ flew to the number one spot on the triple j unearthed pop chart and #10 on their overall charts as well as being added to rotation on the national digital broadcaster and Sydney’s FBi Radio.

Recorded at Golden Retriever studios in Marrickville with Simon Berkelman as engineer, ‘Hauntways’ features notable performances from Andy Bull on synth/keys, Luke Davison (The Preatures) on drums, and Alex Bennison (Andy Bull, Jack River, Megan Washington) on guitar/bass and production.

Backed by a new all-female lineup, a Merpire live show is as captivating as it is dream-inducing, with Rhiannon’s disarming vocals holding you in a perpetual dream-state whilst shifting from ukulele toting to guitar plucking amidst unabashed storytelling and banter.

With ‘Hauntways’ set for release in early February and an EP on the horizon, 2018 is sure to propel Merpire from a humble one-to-watch to a destined rising talent.
