Alice Merton Finds "No Roots"
Mon, 09 Oct 2017 08:28:25
Back in February, German-British singer Alice Merton released her debut EP, No Roots. The album’s title track shot to the top of the charts across a variety of countries, reaching the top five in Germany, France, Luxembourg, Austria, and Slovenia, and now has broken into the Billboard Alt Radio Top 40, while amassing over 60 million plays on Spotify and YouTube.
Merton was raised in Canada, Germany, and England, which is probably why her debut single rings so authentically, as she describes having had many different residences but comes to the realization that her home was never in one place. At only 24, the singer has managed to find a classic pop sound that remains true to her modern upbringing.
ARTISTdirect caught up with Alice Merton to discuss the songs that influenced her, the artists she looks up to, and the track she’d want played at her own funeral.
