MERCI, MERCY RELEASED
STAND-OUT MOMENT FROM
FORTHCOMING EP, ‘SOMETHING
YOU LIKE’ WITH ANIMATED
19-year-old Sydney-based songstress merci, mercy is excited to share ‘Something You Like’ – from her debut EP no thank you, no thanks – with another cleverly animated lyric video from Bianca Bosso.
The heart of the EP, and radiating a beautiful and sincere energy, ‘Something You Like’ sees merci, mercy’s longing vocals gracefully stacked against twinkling textures of alt-pop. The delicate nature of the song makes it a stand-out moment from the release, and shows a new side to the artist, as she braces observations of a soured relationship over tender melodies. Produced by Chris Collins and premiered on Flaunt Magazine overnight, merci, mercy explains:
‘Something You Like’ arrives on the back of three sold-out shows at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory and a newly announced fourth show for Friday October 23. The shows are merci, mercy’s first live performances ever, outside of her recently streamed set via ISOL-AID.
In addition to the announcement of the fourth show, merci, mercy is thrilled to share that the show will also be accessible to fans via a live-stream. This unique moment will bring together those in the venue and those from home for a very special celebratory performance.

merci, mercy released her last single ‘Fall Apart’ this July. Produced by Edwin White (Vance Joy) and Joel Quartermain (G Flip, Meg Mac), and mixed by Spike Stent (CHVRCHES, Grimes, Post Malone), ‘Fall Apart’ juxtaposes the artist’s tough girl exterior with her tender heart. Spinning on triple j locally and added to a long list of playlists across Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon, the song has enamoured fans, and in conjunction with debut single ‘Fucked Myself Up’, has seen her streaming numbers grow to over 4.5 million.
no thank you, no thanks EP is a snapshot of mercy’s life at the age of 18. The six tracks are written from both personal experiences and observations of others and their experiences. “It was quite a therapeutic process for me to write these songs and I hope they might connect with people who have been through similar experiences,” she shares. It’s due for release on October 16.
