What happens when you blend Fiona Apple and Nirvana then add a splash of Tove Lo? You get Los Angeles-based artist, Meg Myers. Her love of grunge music from her teenage years and desire to make catchy pop music fantastically fuse on her debut album, Sorry.
Myers offers a throwback to the 90s with her angst-riddled anthems of heartbreak and growing up. Her raw, emotional lyrics and instrumentation give brief insight to her rough childhood. Sorry uses a balanced assortment of dark, heavy guitar riffs, upbeat, lighthearted tunes, and exposed vocals to showcase Meg Myers’s vocal talent and range. Her airy, taunting voice glides through each track with ease, floating above the instrumentals backing her.
Songs like “Lemon Eyes” and “A Bolt From The Blue” help break the overall brooding of the album with their poppy beats and addicting choruses. However, it is songs like the standout “The Morning After” that truly make you stop and listen to what this girl has to offer. A haunting acoustic guitar leads a vulnerable Myers through her song of longing and desire.
Sorry is an album worth listening to, especially if you are into the grunge from back in the day. Could this be the beginning of a grunge revival? Only time will tell, but what I can tell is that this album is a must listen.
Sorry by Meg Myers is available now on iTunes and other digital retailers.
