Los Angeles indie Americana pop duo Merlot Embargo address the struggles of isolation and battling one’s own demons while simultaneously watching your partner’s success, in honest yet tongue-in-cheek production “I Am Not OK.”
With a gentle but confident vocal line that settles atop jolly acoustic instrumentals of guitar chords, plucky rhythmic lines and bouncy keys, the track is easy going and energetic all at once as it manages to captivate you from first note till last.
Having a bit of fun as they journey through very real feelings, the expansive track is yet another showcase of this duo’s ability to consistently excite fans. With a nearly fatal car accident and a following time of self-reflection forming the basis of the Merlot Embargo, we’re drawn into the provocative but approachable sonic world that unlikely duo Scarlet and Geoff create for us.
