Singer and songwriter Fridolijn makes a haunting statement with her first new single in four years Merry Go Round. Like a spinning carousel this song slowly spirals you inwards. On a bed of dreamy arpeggiators and distant drums, Fridolijn’s crystal clear voice invites you to to find what it is that stirs your soul.
Fridolijn says: “Merry Go Round is a song about soul seasons. Life goes through cycles of excitement and cycles of rest. Cycles of creating output and cycles of feeding on input. This song is about recognising what moves us, so we can dance to our own rhythm, and sway with the seasons.”
With Merry Go Round Fridolijn (pronounce Free-Doe-Line) makes a strong return, after releasing albums with her band Finn Silver, and her 2015 solo debut Catching Currents. The release of Merry Go Round marks a new beginning for the artist, as it is the first of a string of new releases, to be expected later in in the year.
With a combined 2 million streams on Spotify, international shows on stages like Billboard Live Tokyo, The Tabernacle London, and Concertgebouw Amsterdam Fridolijn has steadily been making a name for herself with her personal style of music that can be described as dreamy folktronica.
