Canadian singer-songwriter Merival writes searching songs out of deeply personal tension. Heartache, dysfunction, and interpersonal growth inform her introspective lyrics; philosophical musings are carried by her deceptively involved musical arrangements. Vulnerability is the name of her game, by turns light-hearted and heavy. Merival’s most recent EP Either Side was released in April 2020 and was described by Cups n Cakes Network as “complex, captivating songwriting.”
