This week's feature album comes from Sydney four-piece Mere Women with their highly anticipated fourth LP Romantic Notions.

The album marks the band's first release since their critically acclaimed LP Big Skies in 2017.

Romantic Notions captures the overwhelming intensity of obsessive love and control while sharing often-uncomfortable truths relating to women’s lived experiences; a ubiquitous theme throughout the Mere Women catalogue. 

The looming Mere Women album was written and rehearsed in a riverside cottage in Sydney and later recorded with Tim G Carr at One Flight Up studios in March, on the cusp of lockdown. The foreboding threat of lockdown left a peculiar feeling throughout the recording process, filling the air with a tremendous sense of uncertainty and giving the overall process an unusual edge. 

Accompanying the single 'Romantic Notions' is a video produced entirely by the band, and journeys through the overpowering feelings of being under someone’s control, toward the liberation of both breaking free from dominant shackles and realising deep inner desires.
