Mermaid – Boundaries
Los Angeles duo Mermaid (Brittany Campbell and Candace Quarrels) have shared Boundaries. This infectious earworm highlights Campbell’s and Quarrels’ harmonizing vocals before devolving into a rocking chorus. The band says, “Boundaries is a nostalgic, 90’s high school movie sort of mood. The song was written about the feelings we had for each other right before we were able to fess up – it was the kind of yearning that borders on obsession and we’re not afraid to admit…I guess…” They continue, “The song is vulnerable in its way, speaks of desire and the festering corrosion that happens when you might feel something that is unrequited.” Their sound is infused with soul and R&B with heady nods to alt-rock, jazz, punk, pop, and metal, held together with transcendent harmonies and an unabiding love for one another.
