Merries are a six-piece underground guitar-pop band from Finland, founded in early 2010. Although relatively unknown or may be underrated is a better term, they’ve been playing intense and unpredictable gigs to a crazed fan base in art galleries, on the street, in seedy pubs and sometimes, just sometimes in fancy venues too. 

Their musical style is a mix of classic guitar pop, brit-rock and american bands like The Lemonheads and The Replacements. There's hints of Australian tunesmiths Smudge and the occasional J Mascis-esque guitar solo too but in the end they sound like no one else. These guys know exactly what they are doing and they have been doing it a long time, this is guitar pop of the highest order. There's magic in the melodies and the what you see is what you get approach adds a truly palpable charm. These guys are Finland's best kept secret and we are about to let the cat out of the bag.

You can see their previous 7" releases here. And their very cool T-Shirts here.
