Alice Merton Lashes Out in her new video
After the phenomenal success of her "No Roots" debut single, Alice Merton gets wordy with her new single "Lash Out". "No Roots" also became a global smash with a catchy hook, as the 24-year-old cosmopolitan revealed her soul as a wanderer between continents. Millions could identify with the question of where their own roots actually lie. "Lash Out" picks up on the theme of songwriting from the first-person perspective and ignites the burning desire to awaken one's own power, one's own voice, at first hearing.
"Lash Out was similar to No Roots," recalls Alice Merton. "Being an artist and a human in this world always means confronting people who make you feel like you have to act according to their rules. Like most people, I wanted and still want to live by my own rules. The idea, or, if you like, the need, to write and record 'Lash Out' was born of a feeling within me. "
With driving beats and an immediately catchy chorus, "Lash Out" is an empowerment song for the many people around the world who think they cannot raise their own voices. But letting go of control and of pent up frustration is not enough. You have to know what you actually want to fight for, and that comes from deep down inside each of us. No longer holding back, but self-confidently answering your own needs - that's what "Lash Out" is all about.
