Iranian-Canadian artist Merseh has released her dual single, “Wild Opal“, made up of tracks “Animal” and “Beach House”. Wild Opal is the fourth and final release from the 604 Sessions series – a collection of dual singles from their 2021 song camp.
Merseh’s new dual release got its name as a collaboration of themes between both songs on the record; “Animal” and “Beach House”. Wild is derived from the animalistic hunting theme and Opal is derived from the pearlescent beach theme, together making Wild Opal. Wild opals are semi precious gemstones made up of fossilized raindrops and spiritually representing passion, faith and confidence.
Merseh said of working with 604 artist Matthew V and producer Jared Manierka “Animal”, “This song is electric with a hint of elegance and it absolutely emanates the vibe in the room during its creation. With a pulsing touch of each artist, this dynamic collaboration is something fresh yet fiery. Animal is about a fearless embracement of the darker side of your soulmate. It might be hard sometimes to have the patience and love required to tame that crazy inside of them, but your love runs so deep that you’re willing to be a bit of their prey. “Animal” is powerful, divine, and fearless.”
She continued on “Beach House”, saying, “Beach House is about a sexy escapement of reality and defines what falling in love in paradise feels like. Collaborating with the talented Louise Burns and the legendary Tavish Crowe, we were able to capture what a true paradise looks like to us. Colourful sunsets, soft silver sands, bright diamond oceans and just being surrounded by the depth of opals; these are all metaphors for a colourful and an in-depth connection one might find when falling in love. Eyes as shimmery as the sunset, body as soft as sand, and the mind as euphoric as the layers of opal. This velvety adventure was full of flirty and peaceful scenes.”
