To celebrate the release of his sophomore album Infinite Youth – out Fri 9 April via Humblebrag Records, Merk is heading out on his first ever national headline tour. Presented by 100% Good, 95bFM, Undertheradar, Merk with full band will play five dates across Aotearoa in May. Beginning in Tauranga and taking in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch the tour wraps up in Dunedin and will be fans first chance to hear songs from the new album performed live. Tickets for all shows go on sale 9am Monday 22 March.
A full 11 tracks, Infinite Youth examines the blurry line between adolescence and adulthood, and all the clarity and mess that comes with it. This is a record that thrives on a certain simplicity of rhythm, melody, and lyric, and is compelled by contrast: pop songs influenced by art music, an album about adulthood that reflects heavily on what it is to be young, and a sonic world that is both expansive and deeply intimate.
