Meredith Bites the Earth is from Merry Christmas’ upcoming debut album, The Night The Night Fell which will be out this August. It promises to be a charmingly upbeat affair, judging by this delightful and eccentric song.
The band call themselves a ‘ten legged festive mathy-folk wonder tank,’ and that’s a fairly accurate summation of their sound. Think Arcade Fire, The Pastels, and Of Monsters and Men having a jamming session to Adventure Time and you’ll get the gist of what’s going on here. An epic story told in a very personal style, it’s a charming and catchy and a barrel of fun.
According to the band, the song is about “A girl trapped in a coma realizes she needs to wake up and takes down a mighty foe—Meredith—to earn her escape.”
The Night The Night Fell is out on the 1st of August, 2020, and can be pre-ordered on Bandcamp.
