mermaed Releases Second Single, Championed By local L.A. Radio!

Los Angeles-based Alt-Punk act mermaed is excited to announce the release of “HONEST”, the anthemic second single from their as-yet-untitled EP. The follow up to their debut single and radio favorite “IDIOT” released in August,”HONEST” is, as singer Arielle describes, “a battle cry for women that come from nothing who are having to face the inevitable struggle of just being a female in the music industry”.

Prior to its release, the song was world-premiered on two Los Angeles radio stations: KROQ and ALT 98.7.

Formed in 2017, mermaed found fast success with their debut single, “IDIOT”, immediately landing on the Apple Music ‘Breaking Rock’ playlist, while also garnering over 50,000 Spotify streams in less than one month.

KROQ played “IDIOT” six weeks in a row on their “Locals Only” show – three of which as the #1 most-requested track on the program. Other airplay support has come from major market stations including KITS San Francisco, 91X San Diego, and KWSS Phoenix (among others).

Produced by Jon Joseph (Børns, Super Whatevr) and mixed by Carlos de la Garza (Wolf Alice, Jimmy Eat World), “HONEST”’s ready-for-radio sonics are paired with poignant and topical lyrics, including lines like “it’s much safer to keep the pretty girls in order, they line ’em up like sheep to slaughter”, emphasizing the difficulties female artists have had in the male-dominated rock music world. Arielle says, “In the recent past, I’ve let myself be manipulated and warped into something I was not, am not, and never will be. Now, I’m using my music to bite back!”

Mermaed Story Continues To Develop

Unsigned Los Angeles-based four-piece mermaed is continuing to build its story – after their debut single “IDIOT” spent 3 weeks as the #1 most-requested song on KROQ Los Angeles‘ “Locals Only” show, tastemaker Alternative ALT 105.3 San Francisco picked up on the buzz and played it this past weekend. The song is in regular rotation on Triple A outlet WAPS Akron, OH, and Apple Music added it to their ‘Breaking Rock’ playlist (one of the very few unsigned acts on that list).

mermaed plays a KROQ Locals Only-presented show on October 24 at Resident in DTLA, opening for hotly-tipped Canadian band Cleopatrick (get ticket info HERE).

It was also announced that mermaed has been added to the Taco Bell ‘Feed The Beat’ Fall 2018 lineup, which will bring them additional exposure and promotional opportunities.

mermaed’s debut five-song EP is currently being mixed.
