German born Alice Merton does it again with her new single, “Lash Out”. This woman has complete control of everything she does. I never thought she could top “No Roots”, but “Lash Out” is wonderful. As Merton says:
“Lash Out was similar to No Roots,” recalls Alice Merton. “Being an artist and a human in this world always means confronting people who make you feel like you have to act according to their rules. Like most people, I wanted and still want to live by my own rules. The idea, or, if you like, the need, to write and record ‘Lash Out’ was born of a feeling within me. “
And that feeling resonates with me as well as many others. “No Roots” ruled the world, and so will “Lash Out”. Beautiful production, powerful lyrics, and a voice made in heaven combine to make a perfect song to pound out of your car speakers. Go for it. You’ll feel empowered.
