Welcome to the Prom
"Welcome to the Prom" by Wilson’s Prom
“Welcome to the Prom” from Melbourne pair Merpire and Feels, is a teenage dreamscape that finds itself in a state of “hopeful hopelessness.” The expansiveness of the album is in direct contrast to the isolation “Welcome to the Prom” was created during, as the EP was completely co-written, produced and mixed during isolation. Wilson’s Prom’s EP imagines a world with less limits and more dream-like. Musically the EP mimics the ever-changing personas of teen years, supplementing in different genres and decades for inspiration. In a time that feels just as unpredictable and anxiety provoking as high school, “Welcome to the Prom” is perfect company.
