Merk had a intimate release party for their new single “Whole Summer” in the Financial District in Manhattan. For all you non-New Yorkers, that’s where guys in suits trade stocks in between doing coke. Suffering from a cold, I braved the New York public system to attend the viewing, not only because it’s my job, but also because the group is talented and enjoyable.
Taking place in a loft with different colored lamps in corners around the room, a ping pong table (or maybe an actual beer pong table) against a wall, young music lovers drank beer and rum and conversed in anticipation for the climax of the night aka the video showing. The video which showcases the group poppin bottles, dancing on roof tops and pretty much just enjoying the summer with beautiful women is bitter sweet for me, because as someone who despises the cold, it reminds me that it’s going to be another year until I can get back my beloved summer again.
