It’s​ ​been​ ​a​ ​crazy​ ​year​ ​for​ ​5​ ​piece​ ​Wellington​ ​Rock​ ​band​ ​Merrin​ ​from​ ​Wellington,​ ​NZ.​ ​​ ​After releasing​ ​2​ ​hot​ ​singles,​ ​a​ ​tour​ ​throughout​ ​some​ ​of​ ​NZ’s​ ​beautiful​ ​landscape​ ​and​ ​finding​ ​time​ ​to write​ ​new​ ​content,​ ​Merrin​ ​decided​ ​it​ ​was​ ​time​ ​to​ ​hit​ ​the​ ​studio​ ​to​ ​track​ ​their​ ​8​ ​song​ ​album,​ ​simply titled​ ​“1”.
 

“Rock’n’Roll,​ ​true​ ​story!​ ​We​ ​were​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​dared​ ​to​ ​do​ ​it​ ​and​ ​always​ ​up​ ​for​ ​a​ ​challenge.​ ​So​ ​with only​ ​3​ ​months​ ​it​ ​seemed​ ​crazy,​ ​but​ ​we​ ​did​ ​it​ ​and​ ​had​ ​a​ ​blast!.​ ​​ ​We​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​achieve​ ​a​ ​sound that​ ​was​ ​unique​ ​to​ ​us,​ ​something​ ​that​ ​had​ ​a​ ​true​ ​creative​ ​spark​ ​that​ ​could​ ​lure​ ​your​ ​mind​ ​away from​ ​the​ ​mundane​ ​for​ ​half​ ​an​ ​hour​ ​and​ ​leave​ ​you​ ​wanting​ ​more.​ ​​ ​We​ ​think​ ​we’ve​ ​done​ ​this​ ​and we​ ​can’t​ ​wait​ ​to​ ​share​ ​it​ ​with​ ​you​ ​all.​ ​​ ​We​ ​know​ ​the​ ​title​ ​has​ ​been​ ​used​ ​before,​ ​we​ ​don’t​ ​mind.​ ​​ ​It felt​ ​right​ ​because​ ​we​ ​feel​ ​a​ ​true​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​unity​ ​and​ ​alignment,​ ​as​ ​a​ ​band.”​ ​says​ ​Charlie​ ​Phillips (Female​ ​vocalist).

Merrin​ ​are​ ​excited​ ​to​ ​be​ ​performing​ ​our​ ​album​ ​release​ ​at​ ​Valhalla​ ​(Wellington)​ ​on​ ​the​ ​23rd​ ​of September.
