[Premiere] Garrett Merk – “Sometimes” (Prod. Frace)

By: Shamus Hill

The Graduation Music staff is pleased to present you Garrett Merk’s newest track, “Sometimes”. Featuring production by Frace, this well-orchestrated release revolves around the unpredictable variables of life. Whether it be personal or professional, “sometimes” things happen that we can’t control. Brockton’s Garrett Merk speaks on this below:

I wrote this song during a real weird time. I actually wrote it around the same time I wrote ‘72’. Even though I think these two songs are totally different in terms of sound, I think the content relates. This song is about “sometimes” wanting to give up. “Sometimes” wanting to call it quits, but realizing that I’m in too deep to give up. I’ve had this vision and this goal to pursue music since I was little…but life sometimes gets in the way. Going through heartbreak, being broke, and overthinking shit were all weighing on me during this period of my life. A lot of my music from here on out is a little different than what I’ve put out in the past. There’s more depth to it. It’s more serious.

Everything from the concept of this song to its sonic structure are both well-thought-out and well-executed. Garrett doesn’t plan on giving up on his dreams whatsoever, and his relentless mindset will assuredly assist him in seeing his goals through. Don’t sleep, and if you’re unfamiliar with Garrett Merk’s discography, now’s the perfect opportunity to get hip.

Garrett Merk – “72” (Prod. Frace)

By: Shamus Hill

Massachusetts-native Garrett Merk recently dropped his first single of 2019 — a reflective, energetic offering titled “72”. Serving as the second part of his previous release, “19”, this track is rich with replay value and exposes listeners to a more vulnerable side of the South Shore artist.

For the last few years, Garrett’s released a variety of tracks that emanate a glimmering, joyous feel, however this isn’t the case with this song. Feeling overshadowed by the future he once laid out for himself, Garrett’s found a way to channel the pain he’s endured into the fuel for success. He repeats “Needed that shit that ignited my flame”, several times over the course of the song — shining a light onto how he’s been able to transform negativity into positivity through hard-work and determination. “72” is a real sign of maturity within his musical portfolio, so we’re excited to hear how he continues to develop.
