Portland, Oregon trio Meringue showed up late last year with “Silly Girl”, a Television Personalities cover, followed immediately by debut EP Heavy Lime, available digitally and on cassette. “Weird Blues” is the kick-off track for Meringue’s upcoming split cassette EP with The Wild Body, due for release August 5th, 2018. Meringue includes Kelly Dawson and Elaina Tardif sharing vocal, guitar, and bass duties, with Bryan Robertson on drums. Elaina and Bryan may be familiar from WTSH-beloved Portland quintet Tender Age, whose debut full-length Becoming Real Forever drops July 9th.
The brand new video for “Weird Blues” features a wizard in a dark dive bar whose tarot readings effect events in a nearby laundromat. The seventies vibe in the lyrics and video reflect Kelly’s inspiration by the story of Donna Manson, one of serial killer Ted Bundy’s victims.
