WHEN: New EP – 29.01.2016
Merival is the solo project of Toronto’s Anna Horvath, and this is her latest single A Better Deal. Having collaborated with Swim Good and Darren Seltmann (The Avalanches) she has become quite a busy bee over the past year, and now looks to focus on her own material for 2016. Her upcoming Lovers EP will be released on the 29th of January and if it’s going to sound just a nice as A Better Deal, we are going to be in for a right treat.
A Better Deal kicks off with a melody that immediately envelops the listener deep within the echo-y atmosphere of the track. These melodies decorate the airwaves with a hint of haunting goodness which is boosted by the delivery of Anna’s vocals. There’s the ever so slight hint of piano offering up an extra layer of sound which eventually sinks into the acoustic guitar towards the end of the song, which ends things nicely with an instrumentation that’s fleshed out and pretty darn delightful.
This is a lovely little song from Merival and one that certainly offers up an insight into what to expect from Lovers. It’s full of wonderfully crafted melodies and despite being very intimate with limited instruments present, does offer up a well-rounded listening experience.
