This isn’t the first time we’ve covered merci, mercy, and it certainly won’t be the last. The Sydney-based songstress has always blown us away with her unique brand of alternative pop, and it’s about time she does the same for you. Now adding another fantastic track to her repertoire, merci, mercy has unveiled her uplifting new single, “Black Cloud.”

On “Black Cloud,” merci, mercy explained,

“‘Black Cloud’ is about my mental health taking a toll on my relationship. I’m unable to experience the simple joys of life with my partner because I’m consumed by a black cloud. I am the type of person that needs to know it will work out or else I won’t bother to try.”

If you’ve ever felt like you’ve stood in the way of your own happiness, “Black Cloud” would be the perfect soundtrack for your daily affirmations. With a tendency to contrast moody lyricism with cheerful instrumentals, merci, mercy always manages to draw listeners in with ease. Leaving us with a gorgeous grand piano decrescendo, “Black Cloud” has us pondering for a moment about how merci, mercy just may be one of our favorite artists of 2022.

“This song shows that I am working on myself to make the relationship successful, despite being wrapped in a black cloud. I’m willing to do the work because of how much I love this person; life would be a tragedy if I didn’t at least try.”
