Fresh – Merch Girl

Wunsch und Wirklichkeit liegen manchmal dichter beieinander als wir denken. Und manchmal ist es einfacher den Wunsch zu begraben und sich für das realistischere Ziel zu entscheiden. Im Grunde geht es darum im neuen Song von Fresh. Die Indie Pop Punk Band aus London befasst sich damit in ‚Merch Girl‘: „Merch girl is about living in that space between wanting something and achieving something. It’s kind of a character song, about somebody that is involved in music – but not in the way that they want to be, and they’re frustrated by that. At the beginning of the song, they’re watching from the sidelines, but as the song progresses they make the decision to create their own art. It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek, drawing from clichés of the wallflower, the sidekick, but ultimately it’s empowering and a reflection on the ways that we come into our own as women artists.“
