Merk Returns With Bedroom-Pop Single 'H.N.Y.B' + Video

Merk Returns With Bedroom-Pop Single 'H.N.Y.B' + Video

A.K. / Friday 21st February, 2020 11:12AM

Merk, the solo project of Tāmaki Makaurau musician Mark Perkins, has made a mastermind move with his new single 'H.N.Y.B'. The track takes a minimalist approach to a New Year's Eve song, a deliberate experiment on Perkins' part to "see how long you could go with doing very little while keeping it interesting", simultaneously, and ingeniously, penning a song that will surge in popularity every December 31st for years to come. The visuals, directed by Perkins' and Martin Sagadin, lean into the idea of life being circular; the orbiting moon and Earth's journey around the sun, and the nature of home recording leading to Merk "dreaming of celestial heights while being stuck in my room". Take a nostalgia trip with 'H.N.Y.B', Merk's first new release since 2018, and support the artist's SXSW fundraiser with Imugi 이무기 and Antony Jeffares at Auckland's Whammy Bar on Wednesday 11th March...
