'Sassy Irish singer/songwriter Alexa Merlot has conjured up a haunting and majestic new EP entitled ‘Red and Purple’. Recalling early Evanescence, with a hint of Shakespeare’s Sister Merlot will enchant many with her gorgeous, ethereal vocals, ideally complemented by scuzzy guitar and minimalist but atmospheric drums. The delicious title track is a strong indicator of the sensual charm Merlot possesses, and earmarks her out as a distinctive talent in this over-populated genre. The standout track of the EP is ‘Insomnia’s Kiss’, a mixture of decadent angst and given extra poignancy by Merlot’s gut-wrenching vocal delivery which sounds in tandem both dark and yet strangely euphoric.' - Jamie Brannon, Freeq Magazine
