Big Merino - Ohio

Big Merino - Ohio
Despite an obvious passion for what’s often called ‘Americana', Big Merino somehow still sound quintessentially Australian - the lyrics and sound shaped by the landscape and their own stories. The live sound is a classic combination of acoustic and electric guitars, vocals, bass and drums. But the album is fleshed out with multiple guitar layers, gospel style harmonies, Hammond organ, piano, horns and percussion.

2018 was a big year for the newly formed Sydney-based band - they released their debut album ‘Suburban Wildlife’ thru the Foghorn label, made two cinematic film clips with director Alan Harca, and performed all around Sydney.

Next month the band will release their 2nd album ‘Sweet Little Angel’ and plans to tour and perform at various festivals around the country, starting with Murringo and Quandialla in June.

The first single to be lifted from Sweet Little Angel is the balladesque title track, while the B-side accompaniment is a cover of the politically charged protest song of 1970, 'Ohio'. Penned by Neil Young and recorded with his band Crosby Stills Nash and Young, the song is a guitar-led melodic track that will be familiar to most music lovers.
