Mermaidens are back wearing their hearts on their sleeves, or more accurately in their pockets, in their fab PDA video for lilting new single 'I like to be alone'. The trio of Gussie Larkin, Lily West, and Abe Hollingsworth's unabashed love for double denim styling veers from heartwarming to fantastical in their baby blue toned, Michael Gondry inspired clip— directed by Larkin, filmed by her Earth Tongue partner Ezra Simons, and made with support from NZ On Air. Spotlighting the productive value of personal space within long term relationships, 'I like to be alone' set an uplifting scene for Mermaidens' just-announced self-titled fourth studio album, launching independently into the universe on Friday 3rd November.

Their first long player since 2019's Taite nominated Look Me In The Eye, Mermaidens was primarily recorded at Pōneke's Surgery Studios, engineered by Lee Prebble and co-produced by the band with Samuel Flynn-Scott (The Phoenix Foundation). Signifying a bold new era for the group, soak up the audio-visual magic below and get in your vinyl LP and CD preorders for Mermaidens HERE...

"The giant jean pocket and denim world were created by Hannah Webster, a textile designer and illustrator based in Wellington. Hannah took all the wild ideas for props and made them come true! I’m still in awe of how she managed to sew a 6x6 metre backdrop for the denim world out of whatever scraps she could find. The video captures our playfulness and sense of humour, and is a hint of what’s to come for the rest of the music videos. I love the way the story wraps up with the three of us together, literally playing “in the pocket”.

'Mermaidens' launches on Friday 3rd November — preorders available HERE.
