Bright and beautiful: Merry Ellen Kirk’s ‘Dreaming in Color’
Location: Missouri, United States
FFO: Lorde, Regina Spektor, Banks
Missouri singer-songwriter Merry Ellen Kirk‘s unique brand of folk is one that revolves around the dichotomy of fantasy and reality, an exceedingly relatable human experience that Kirk beautifully conveys in her track ‘Dreaming in Color’. An elegant array of synths, piano and drum tracks lay the foundations for Kirk’s soprano-style lofty vocals that exude emotion and sentiment in a sublime, ever-changing melody. All in all, a vibrant and beautiful track.
Merry Ellen Kirk described the track to be “an exploration of the space between reality and dreams; the gap between who we are and want to be.”
