MERK is a New York-based Zimbabwean music collective who’ve been making buzz in the run-up to their upcoming EP, Safe in Sound (due October 9).
The group just released a video for “Loco Loco,” a song that has elements of afrobeats, reggae and pop. The clip features the MERK crew frolicking and playing soccer.
“The record is fun, it felt like a single and we felt like it needed a fun video,” says Bic, the crew’s frontman. “[The video] is kind of inspired by Space Jam, one of our childhood favorites. We played an entire game of football during the shoot. We won.”
