Hero‘ by Alice Merton – Single Rating: 4/5 ★★★★

Alice Merton is a newcomer to the GSGM camp. However, the brief time we spent with her gracing our ears has left an impression. She is brimming with zeal and has a unique approach to music that helps her stand out from the crowd.

The singer-songwriter, born in Germany, masterfully blends the perfect amount of pop, electronic, and indie on her current track, ‘Hero.’ It’s a mash-up of several styles, with a nostalgic 80s vibe emanating from the synth. The cadence is highly engaging with a feel-good bass groove that synergizes perfectly alongside a syncopated drum rhythm.

Alice Merton’s voice is a breath of fresh air, and anyone who enjoys Marina And The Diamonds will most likely find Alice to be their cup of tea as well. She has a beautiful, unforgettable tone. Additionally, she overlays her mixes with a warmth that keeps us fascinated from beginning to end. Her lyrics are also thought-provoking, with Alice speaking of rescuing us from the past and assisting in restoring our sense of self. With her wordplay, she gets to the heart of the matter.

Overall, Alice Merton’s ‘Hero’ is a joy to listen to from the get-go. It isn’t dissimilar to what the other players in the game are doing. But, Alice has a unique appeal that keeps her in the spotlight. Also, because she is so versatile in her music performance, she will undoubtedly attract a diverse group of followers as she progresses in her career.
