Mertles Acres’ latest video for “Away We Go,” out now on an album of the same name, is powerful, heartfelt, and DIY.

Mertles Acres hail from Milwaukee, WI and consist of two familiar faces—Danny Walkowiak and Steve Maury—both formerly long-standing members of Direct Hit!

“We wanted something simple, and we knew our friend Nick Hill can turn something simple into something artsy,” said Steve Maury. “This entire band is basically a reason for Danny and I to get together and have a beer together. I think this video captures the simplicity of this band.”

Danny holds down the beat on drums while Steve slays on guitar. Steve actually played every instrument (sans drums) and recorded the debut, self-titled album himself. The-10 song album was released last Friday, April 3 and can be streamed here.
