Flying Nun's curiously off kilter indie pop newcomers...

New Zealand trio Mermaidens have emerged from Wellington's ever creative DIY scene, an underground network of promoters, musicians, and other waifs and strays.

The band's 2014 debut EP set out their stall clearly, fusing skeletal post-punk with aspects of ramshackle indie pop.

Flying Nun swooped to sign them, with the three-piece set to release new album 'Perfect Body' on the label this summer.

Mermaidens are able to share intriguing new cut 'Lizard' via Clash, and it offers noisy, scratchy, enigmatic songwriting.

Veering off into paths of their own, the three-piece fuse their influences with a keenly individual touch. Tune in now.

Mermaidens' new album 'Perfect Body' will be released on August 4th.
