Wandering Around: Alice Merton – “No Roots”

Alice Merton

“No Roots”

The perfect song for those travelers all over the world, the restless souls who can’t settle down.  Alice Merton understands those feelings.  As she sings:  “I have no roots, but my home was never on the ground.”  I get the same feeling from this song as I do from Lobo’s, “Me And You And A Dog Named Boo”  (that’s a complement, you hipsters).  This is the best wandering song I’ve heard.  Raised in Canada, finishing high school in Germany, then moving on to England with her family, Alice has gotten quite used to packing and unpacking boxes. With her debut single No Roots, she describes the life of having had many different homes, but comes to the realization that her home was never in one place.  I love this song.  No wonder it’s gotten great reviews everywhere.  Oh, and her voice is amazing.  When she hits those high notes, it’s just beauty incarnate.
