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.
