Merseh releases ‘Wild Opal’ for 604 Sessions


All month long, we have given you fresh releases from incredible up-and-coming singer-songwriters, as part of the 604 Sessions for 604 Records.  As June comes to a close, we unfortunately have to say good-bye to this amazing series, but not before hearing from Iranian-Canadian artist Merseh.  Inspired by artists like Flume, Odesza, and Rufus du Sol, Merseh enjoys mixing elements of EDM and pop to create a mystical musical experience for her fans.  Her formula is working, as she has signed to various labels and earned recognition in international markets within the three years she has been recording.  Closing the 604 Sessions out in style, Merseh gives us Wild Opal, which shows off her unique and invigorating sound.

A dual release, Wild Opal contains the fierce “Animal” and the romantic “Beach House,” making for a dynamic project.  The energy is high on “Animal,” with Merseh giving us rousing rhythms and stirring lyrics to make for an exuberant electropop track.  After such a thrill, Merseh then takes us to her “Beach House,” where we can unwind under “lilac skies and pink clouds.”  As we take in the incredible views of “velvet waves” and “oceans made of diamonds,” we are treated to Merseh’s glossy vocals, making us feel at home in paradise.

Telling us more about the dual release, Merseh explains,

This dynamic collaboration is something fresh yet fiery.  ‘Animal’ is about a fearless embracement of the darker side of your soulmate.  It might be hard sometimes to have the patience and love required to tame that crazy inside of them, but your love runs so deep that you’re willing to be a bit of their prey.  Beach House’ is about a sexy escapement of reality, and defines what falling in love in paradise feels like. Collaborating with the talented Louise Burns and the legendary Tavish Crowe, we were able to capture what a true paradise looks like to us.  Colorful sunsets, soft silver sands, bright diamond oceans and just being surrounded by the depth of opals; these are all metaphors for a colorful and an in-depth connection one might find when falling in love.” 

You can listen to Wild Opal on platforms like Apple Music and Spotify.
