Kieran Mercer has been in the Canadian music scene for years, opening for the likes of Marianas Trench, Walk Off The Earth, Carly Rae Jepsen and Lights. Over the last year, Kieran has been hard at work in the studio with producers Stephen “Koz” Kozmeniuk (Dua Lipa) and Michael Wise (Serena Ryder). Together they have been compiling a 4 song EP titled Fools Gold, which is due out later this year.
“I feel like I’ve finally reached the sound and vision I’ve always been striving for with Fools Gold. Koz and Mike knew how to perfectly harness my vintage influences while keeping the production in 2018,” notes Mercer.
“Looking Through the Glass” has a folk-like storytelling aesthetic that feels warm and familiar. The backing vocals feel nostalgic, lending to the reminiscent quality of the song. Check this one out below.
