Merit / Press

“Merit is an interesting band, due to the fact that they occupy a place in popular music that has not been filled by hundreds of acts up to this point.”

“Pick this up, it’s only a short matter of time before the mainstream really catches on.”

“At a respectable three-and-a-half minutes, the song (Icicles) escalates with powerful vocals and top-notch instrumentation, making it an easy selling point for the disc”

“Merit’s sophomore cd is edgy with a no holds barred, in your face attitude. Brenna Merritt’s vocals strike a powerful sound that leaves the listener wanting more. This band is on their way!”


“Imagine if Concrete Blonde grew up listening to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs..”

Chuck Eddy - The Village Voice

“On this 10-song collection of originals (S/T double EP), Syr-rock-cuse not only lives, it thrives with energy and bite”
