Thursday Spotlight: Merriment


If you haven’t heard of Merriment, you’ve certainly heard of their relatives. Four of their older siblings and a cousin make up indie-pop vets Eisley and two of their brother-in-laws are Max Bemis of Say Anything and Darren King of Mutemath. Indeed, the two youngest DuPree siblings, Christie and Collin, come from a line of talented musicians, but they are certainly not to be written off because of their youth.

On the contrary, this indie pop duo is coming into their own, having opened for Eisley and Say Anything and cultivating their own fan base through their stripped-down sound. Now signed to Equal Vision Records, the Tyler, Texas duo is set to release their debut album early next year. They recently released two new songs, the first of which is the startlingly catchy “Backwards”, which you can listen to below:

The band is currently on tour with Eisley and Say Anything. You can follow them on Twitter. Also, be sure to download their two new songs on iTunes.
