Merci, Mercy – Winnie Crush

In March 2020, Mercedes Thorne released her first proper single Fucked Myself Up as Merci, Mercy. It was a song about dependence on alcohol. Her new single Winnie Crush has the same theme, lyrically. In a press release, the singer explains it’s “about a toxic relationship that I have with myself [and] these bad habits that I’m letting take control over my life. I can barely afford what is good for my body let alone what’s bad for it.”

If you now think ‘not much has changed in that year and a half’, think again. Following her break-through EP No Thank You, No Thanks, Merci, Mercy signed a record deal with Capitol Records in the US and EMI in the UK. Both companies are part of the world’s largest record company, Universal Music Group. So, now that she’s become a household name in her native Australia, the world is next on her roadmap.

Winnie Crush is a catchy track with walking bass lines, funky guitars and a bearable level of vocoder. As always, Merci, Mercy doesn’t wear her heart on her sleeve. Her lyrics are direct, brutally honest and very relatable. A potential future star.
