19-year-old producer sonn teams up with Swedish-Iranian songstress Ayelle on sultry, smooth new single ‘Mercy’. Thematically, the track draws on the feeling of falling for somebody, exploring the notion through raw, emotive lyricism. “Lights Out“, the pair’s previous collaborative effort recently broke 1 million streams on Spotify – no mean feat for two young, emerging artists.
“Whilst producing Mercy I wanted the song to provide a sense of nostalgia, I used big airy synths to emulate a cloud-like emotion making whoever is listening feel warm.” – sonn
“Mercy is about that moment in a new relationship when you decide to let down your guard and you’re low-key freaking out because it might be a horrible idea but you can’t help yourself.” – Ayelle
