Old Mervs are riding at the peak of a surf-rock renaissance in Western Australia, having sold out a string of huge rooms in 2021, landing their first spins on Triple J and winning fans across the country with their no-nonsense songwriting and country-lad charm. After launching latest single ‘Out of Luck’ to a sold out Jack Rabbit Slims in Perth, and following up with a run of massive shows supporting Spacey Jane, Mervs are looking to celebrate the start of a fine new year in 2022 by patrolling the beaches of WA with their Coastal Watch Tour, supported by local Indie-rockers Sunsick.
Best mates since the age of 5, David House (vocals & guitar) and Henry Carrington-Jones (drums) grew up together in Kojonup, a tiny town approximately halfway between Perth and Albany. They began their journey as Old Mervs as Henry finished high school in 2017, converting an old stable into their first jam space and spending the following years flitting between stints in Wollongong, Perth and various country towns. With David now based in Margaret River, and Henry in Perth, the band have been building their regional and metro fanbase in 2021 with successive sell-out shows at Freo.Social, The River and Jack Rabbit Slims
