“Coastline” will transport you to those melancholy LA foggy mornings on the beach, close our eyes and you’ll almost feel the breeze. Mehro¬†shares,¬†“I wrote the¬†song¬†for a person I could no longer speak to. One night I was looking¬†out¬†to the Malibu mountains and this person came to my mind. This was the¬†song¬†that was channelled¬†through¬†me. I guess it was the only way I could communicate with them”. ¬†Since his debute in 2020 has already been championed by standouts like¬†NPR’s All Songs Considered,¬†American Songwriter,¬†FLOOD¬†and¬†The Line of Best Fit‚ÄĒwho shared a¬†virtuoso debut live video. mehro’s highly praised SKY ON FIRE project catapulted the artist to¬†new¬†heights with over¬†34M streams¬†on all platforms,¬†200K Instagram¬†followers,¬†350K TikTok views in a single night¬†and half a million views overall on the platform.

It is to no one’s surprise that listeners around the globe have fallen for¬†mehro. From his deft, poignant lyrics to his sweet, indie sound,¬†mehro¬†is evocative of pioneers like Elliott Smith, Jeff Buckley and Rufus Wainwright. In the starry-eyed “coastline,” we see¬†mehro¬†venture into a genre-less lane where pop, indie rock, and folk intersect. Gorgeous percussion swells in the soundscape with a pulsing tempo pushing the track along.

From composition to lyrical imagery,¬†mehro¬†captures the essence of a soul much older and wiser than we would imagine his to be, coming¬†through¬†with a sincerity and maturity that is missing from the current musical landscape. “For those who are reading this, and for those who listen to the¬†song, here is what I‚Äôll tell you: there is nothing that you can find outside of yourself, the destination is in your eyes.”
