Fresh Announce New EP, Drop New Single ‘Merch Girl’

    London band Fresh have dropped ‘Merch Girl’, the first single from their upcoming EP of the same name, which is out April 19 via Get Better and Specialist Subject. Take a listen below.

    “‘Merch Girl’ is about living in that space between wanting something and achieving something,” the band explained in a press release. “It’s kind of a character song, about somebody that is involved in music – but not in the way that they want to be, and they’re frustrated by that. At the beginning of the song, they’re watching from the sidelines, but as the song progresses they make the decision to create their own art. It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek, drawing from clichés of the wallflower, the sidekick, but ultimately it’s empowering and a reflection on the ways that we come into our own as women artists.”

    Fresh’s last album was 2022’s Raise Hell.
