Great mellow track with minimal elecrtronic elements off set by a great vocal performance.

taken from www.thesixtyone.com:

“Merz aka Conrad Lambert has a life as unorthodox as his music. He began his travels at 18, after his schooling in West Yorkshire, and has made friends in 48 countries. His parents live in Mongolia, his grandmother was born in Babylon (Long Island that is). He’s currently settled in Bristol, where, distanced from the industry, he writes his curious music.” NME

“A maverick with three decades of cultural exploring behind him, Conrad Lambert is a post-pop auteur with a distinctive croaky voice and oodles of left-field ideas.” UNCUT

“In the airbrushed teen market, he might be deemed no oil painting, but to the trained eye he resembles Vincint Van Gogh. Lend him your ears.” EVENING STANDARD.

6 “merz’s debut should be cherished….it will leave you bewitched” cd of the week, The Guardian.
