Meiko Releases “Name That Tune” Single

Ahead of the May 21 release of her fifth studio album, In Your Dreams, singer-songwriter Meiko shared “Name That Tune” today, another track from the anticipated full-length.

Hear “Name That Tune” HERE.

Much more stripped-down and melancholy than the album’s debut single, “Gimme Gimme”, the subject of this track is a personal one for Meiko. “This one’s about mental illness and loving someone who’ll never get better or be there like you want them to be. My mom was in a cult from the time I was about 7 years old. We couldn’t talk without her telling me I was a bad person for not searching out ‘the truth’, and how sad she was that I was going to hell. It was quite the mind-f**k as a preteen. Eventually she disappeared into the night, and I didn’t see her again until I found her at age 24. She’s inspired lots of songs. This is just one of many. I call her ‘my first heartbreak’, although I’m grateful for her in many ways. Her having the balls to leave when she was not stable gave me an overall very stable life with my Dad and amazing Stepmother”.

The song (and the In Your Dreams album) was produced by Justin Glasco (The Lone Bellow) and mixed by Bryan Cook (U2, Train).

Buzzbands.LA Premieres Mermaed’s “HONEST” Music Video

Tastemaker music blog Buzzbands.LA premiered today the new music video from Los Angeles-based punk-pop quartet mermaed. Have a look HERE.

Directed by Michael L. Costa, the video depicts the progressive manipulation and ultimate erasure of a band by ‘industry handlers’. Singer Arielle Ackford says, “All of the things that happen in the video have happened to us or to friends of ours, and all of these shitty things are issues we want to call out and be a voice against because we are tired of that music culture.”

mermaed are readying their debut EP, I Know You Are But What Am I? set for a mid-July independent release. They are currently available for worldwide signing, licensing, publishing, and booking.
