“Hush now, baby, there’s no need to cry. Let me wipe away those lemon eyes.”
The great Tennessee-native, Meg Myers, has a new release, and it packs quite a punch. Much like lemons, Myer’s hot, new track has the same in-your-face, sharp, punchy quality making it the perfect song to head bang to and close out the summer with.
Don’t be fooled by Myers’ big doe-eyes and sweet voice—”Lemon Eyes” proves that Myers is a badass. Although the song starts off sweet, hushed, and innocent, she surprises us with a chorus that is heavy-laden with electric guitar licks and high-powered drumming. The lyrics are angsty, and the melody is very reminiscent of grungy 90s alternative rock, leading listeners back down memory lane. If you’re into artists like Noosa, HAIM, and/or Tegan and Sara, you should definitely check out Meg Myers.
Keep your eyes peeled for her debut album Sorry, which is due for release on September 18. It is available for pre-order now on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and the Warner Music Store. In the meantime, Sorry is available to stream on SoundCloud. You can find her on Spotify as well. Check out her Fall Tour dates below!
