Tyler, TX-based indie-pop outfit Merriment is premiering a new video featuring never-before-seen footage of the band recording their recently released debut album, Sway.
The video features the song “Now I’m Silver” and can be seen at Merriment.merchnow.com, where the band’s new vinyl for Sway is also now available. This is the first pressing of Sway and is limited to 500 on black vinyl.
The band is currently on tour with Sucré (featuring Stacy King of Eisley) and The Honey Trees. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.
Merriment is comprised of Christie and Collin DuPree, the younger siblings of Eisley, and is signed to Rory Records – an Equal Vision Records’ imprint label created by Say Anything’s Max Bemis.
The stunning album features twelve tracks filled with lush harmonies, all serenely delivered through the sweet, angelic vocals of Christie DuPree. Merriment flawlessly pairs hypnotic indie pop melodies with the warmth of folk-tinged Americana elements to create a bright yet delicate and graceful blend that is all their own.
Sway was recorded in the band’s hometown, with Charlie Brand of Miniature Tigers serving as producer.
