Since her departure from the Brooklyn indie rock band Debbie Downer, multi-instrumentalist Nicole Mercedes has developed a haunting approach to songwriting that’s wry and witty, yet still vulnerable. Her sophomore LP Look Out Where You’re Going is dreamy and melodic, featuring tastefully arranged organ and synth parts that give the record a profound sense of depth.
“This album chronicles the end of one of those long, meaningful relationships that mark a departure from the safety of being attached to someone to the chaos of being on your own,” – Nicole Mercedes
Collaborating with producer Joe Rogers (Laura Stevenson, Rubblebucket, Deer Tick’s Andy T), and mostly tracked in her bedroom, Mercedes encapsulates the feeling of long afternoons gazing through rainy panes, desperately longing to be somewhere else. Something we can probably all relate to right now!
