Pōneke power trio Mermaidens are back, and back in style! That magical combo of Gussie Larkin (guitar and vocals), Lily West (bass and vocals) and Abe Hollingsworth (drums), have announced their fourth album, a self-titled exercise in indie brilliance, with first single I like to be alone making its debut this very morning. Largely recorded with the wizardly Lee Prebble at his Surgery Studios, and produced by the band alongside The Phoenix Foundation's Samuel Flynn Scott, whose mentorship the band say helped push them beyond their comfort zone, Mermaidens finds the band taking a DIY approach, releasing the album entirely independently. Exploring themes of "self-awareness, introspection, long-term love, and even channelling political anger and frustration", we are 101% ready for this! - Flying Out

With a sound that is both bold and adventurous, Mermaidens' music is a testament to their unwavering creativity and relentless work ethic.
