The Dutch singer songwriter Merel goes by the name of Blackbird. She just released her first single called ‘Wicked Song’. It’s inspired by a Dutch poem and the message of the track basically comes down to celebrating life, the endless search for happiness and freedom, and how we get lost in that sometimes. HerĀ sound is best described as a mix between popĀ and folk, topped off with a whiff of soul that’s especially noticeable in Merel her voice. Luckily, we recorded not only her track ‘Blackbird’, but also ‘Lost in the Middle’, which you can’t find online just yet. So consider this a first!
