Brooklyn-based dream-pop singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Nicole Mercedes, shares the debut single, “Stoop,” from her sophomore album, Look Out Where You’re Going, due out in April 2020. Yes, it is Valentine’s Day and no, this song isn’t about love.
The forthcoming album is a collaboration with producer Joe Rogers (Rubblebucket, Andy T [of Deer Tick], Laura Stevenson). Mercedes is responsible for all compositions and arrangements on the LP, and with the help of Rogers, has created a sound that is perfectly pop and haunting all at once. Catchy synth-heavy melodies are coupled with cutting lyrics that can be easily missed and add a depth to the delicate tracks.
Join Nicole Mercedes for her “Stoop” single release party this Saturday, February 15, at Broadway in Brooklyn, NY. You may recognize Mercedes’s face and talent from her previous projects, Debbie Downer and Flocke, but get ready for a whole new era of lush, cinematic, sex-positive, feminist, self-aware songs.
