Feature: Old Mervs – Get Better

Two highschool friends from regional Western Australia meetup, sharing stories of their day.

One thing leads to another and Dave House & Henry Carrington-Jones start playing music together, working on tunes in their downtime, before making the decision to convert an old stable on Henry’s parent’s property to a rehearsal space.

Blood, sweat and a couple of bevs later, the boys, with a country allure, had formed Old Mervs and doubled down on daily sessions in the sweaty barn. These formative years would prove fundamental to the band and their debut EP ‘Get Better’, cutting their teeth in the mellow surroundings.

Realizing their calling was not monotony the duo had found themselves in, they crafted ‘Get Better’ in cathartic writing sessions that drew daily confirmations of just where they needed to be: writing tunes, in their barn, with the sun setting in the distance.

‘Get Better’ is a memorandum of self-reflection; bringing to life the emotions felt post-high school, when you’re forced to reflect, more deeply than ever, on who you want to be and where you’d like to go.

Get Better is available NOW.
