Heroine Music Group

Type: Album

For a release called Sky on Fire, it surely sounds nothing as chaotic as that phrase.

The 2021 release from Los Angeles-based Mehro is actually a more pensive, acoustic collection that moves along the clouds on a clear day. No matter the weather, it’s endlessly enjoyable. 

“Lightning” is a delicate fingerpicked ballad replete with lyrics from a singer beyond his years “‘I’m in no rush to get older/Don't need to know who I'm gonna be/Feels like life is getting shorter/Comes and goes like lightning/Too blessed to be worried/Don't need the feeling of regret Everybody has a story/And ours hasn't started yet”.

“Hideous” shows an artist that could be a little kinder to themselves. It’s another sparkling ballad that drifts quickly into “Perfume”, one of the release’s centerpieces. The lines “Heels over head in the bedroom/You smell so good, don't need perfume/I’m a tulip, you're the spring bloom/I’d be a fool not to love you” is a sweet sentiment that is endlessly replayable.

The truth is the songs on Sky on Fire are a brief collection that’s distilled the essence of Mehro’s sound. It’s the sound of an artist emerging, honing their craft. Whatever comes next from Mehro will start to add to a pretty impressive canvas, and it will be exciting to see what that looks like.
