The Merindas are currently making a name for themselves as one of the most electrifying live acts in Australia. They describe their unique sound as electronic pop with a lot of harmony and dancehall feel alongside afrobeats, hip hop with R&B influences.
Their new single ‘Before Daylight’, full of vibrant hooks and flawless sassy vocals is inspired by a traditional Noongar dreaming story called Bimban Born-Kissing Trees. It's about a man and woman who were forbidden to be together. The lyrics 'Before Daylight, give me one last kiss goodbye' describes the couples last moments embraced in each other’s arms. Their love was so strong it grew in harmony with the land through two trees. These trees grew side by side with their branches touching symbolising their last kiss.
The Merindas have achieved incredible success over the past 7 years supporting some of Australia’s biggest stars including Jessica Mauboy, Dan Sultan, and international Grammy Award winner artist Brandy.
