Strictly speaking, with most members hailing from countries other than Lithuania, it would be tricky to classify Merope as a Lithuanian band, however, as its music is largely centred around the singing and kanklės playing by the world-roaming Lithuanian Indrė Jurgelevičiūtė, the collective is a prime example of Lithuanian folk influences finding a firm place in the global ocean of experimental world sounds.
Merope’s unique atmospheric aesthetic weaves together elements of electronic, ambient, indie and traditional music into a colorful carpet that is at once local and universal. It represents a very contemporary understanding of the shared roots of all musical creation, and promotes a pursuit of transcultural unity that escapes narrow-minded cultural seclusion. Aside from music, Merope also adresses other global concern such as the state of the ecosystem and our reliance on energy, this commitment to harmony in all its aspects makes their work deeply resonant in today’s international community in search of its roots.
Their third album 'Naktės' (nights) presents a world full of wonder, inspired by the precious atmosphere of the night. Naktės was only recorded during the hours of the deep night and brings you into higher realms. An ode to the night, full of splendor. Mystery and folk flow into the ocean of modern times.
Merope's fourth album is going to be released in February 2021.
