It seems as though every new week I find a new artist from the Massachusetts area that I end up loving. Naturally, with so much music going in and out of my headphones, I don’t end up revisiting every single one, but one act that has always stuck with me is Garrett Merk. For Merk, longevity comes naturally. His music effortlessly communicates universal themes in ways that are equally as infectious as they are understandable, not to mention the fact that he holds an unreal amount of talent and sky-high potential. Today, we see these aspects of his artistry in the context of a brand new release, “GTR”.
Led by one of the most illustrative instrumentals that I’ve ever heard Merk take on, “GTR” is the kind of song that you can listen to throughout an entire range of emotions. It’s easy to find comfort in the addictive sound, and with a video that perfectly represents the rising talent’s energetic presence whenever he steps near a mic, this feels like a remarkably true-to-self release. Garrett Merk is the kind of artist that’s going to be around for quite a while, and he’s only just getting started. That said, this wonderfully cinematic set of visuals will surely impress anyone that they come across, so be sure not to sleep.
