Josh and Mer have been on the up and up this whole year. This time around, they sent me their single, “Porcelain,” and it’s a beautiful, new wave approach to modern orchestral pop.
As the song begins, it’s a delicate start — as if it really were as delicate as porcelain. The acoustic guitar and piano lend a soft touch, and the vocals are airy and heartfelt, and remain that way throughout the song. The instruments, on the other hand, continually build up their intensity until they take on a balancing act of hard and soft. There’s electric guitar dancing around the piano while the piano tip toes on top of the rest. We can’t forget about Josh and Mer’s harmonies; they’re sweet enough to put any baby to sleep.
With all of their constant hard work, Josh and Mer deserve all the recognition they can get. They’re even running a Kickstarter campaign to fund their newest music video adventure through the kind donations of their fans. Help ‘em out! Remember, a little goes a long way!
