Meri Amber is a geek pop singer songwriter who’s songs are lasers, kazoos and ninja style world domination. On the 20th of September she is releasing her premiere EP, the Super EP, with an accompanying comic book that was also written, sketched, inked and coloured by her. The release is described as a marvel of pop culture snippets, sonic candy and life observations.
I was lucky enough to be contacted by Meri Amber directly, with a sneak peek of her album before it was released. I have really been into geek music lately and love finding new artists, but it’s even better when they find me!
Her EP, the Super EP, is 7 songs of really fun poppy music and the obligatory ballad of sorts. It starts off with the catchy My Superman which actually includes lyrics like BAM! ans POW! and has a great chorus. I have even woke up with it stuck in my head. It’s the real focus of this EP I feel, and she even has a video for it now.
But don’t let that stop you from listening to the other songs on the EP. There is even a song called Boobs which is about ruling the world with your boobs. And what lady wouldn’t want to do that? And then there is the song Friday Viral about viral videos with some great references to those viral videos we love like Honey Badger and even the loved/hated Friday by Rebecca Black.
I have to say though, that besides My Superman I really am partial to the last song on the EP, We, which is the ballad of the album. It’s a nice little song and shows off Meri Amber’s range as a budding artist.
Overall the EP is 7 songs of fun, with a great upbeat tone that will leave you smiling. And most likely a song or two will get stuck in your head thanks to her catchy lyrics and melodies. It’s a feel good bunch of songs and I loved them all.
And as for Meri Amber herself, she seems to be making the rounds of conventions in her home country of Australia, and making a name for herself. It’s really nice to see more females getting into geek music and getting popular.
You can find Meri Amber online at www.meriamber.com with links to her EP as well as her social media sites. I highly recommend this EP to anyone who likes geek music or pop music or just wants to try something new.
