Landed with “No Roots” Alice Merton A super hit at the end of 2016. The song achieved top international placements and made many catchy tunes for a long time. But there is a serious story behind the piece with the catchy beat, because Alice Merton, who was born in Frankfurt am Main, grew up in a total of four countries and therefore knows only too well the feeling of being uprooted.
At our jubilee show on the occasion of ten years of TV Noir in Berlin's Admiralspalast, Alice Merton presented “No Roots” in a very unusual way: Her hit can no longer be danced all alone at the piano, but rather stimulates reflection and almost sets the tone little sad. Alice said on TV Noir:
“I'm very often asked why this version sounds so sad and I always answer that there are always two sides to all moving: There is this side that you move very often and like to meet new people and see many places, but then there is also the side that makes you very depressed and you always have the feeling that you have been torn away by someone. And that hurts a lot and that's this side, so to speak. "
Alice Mertons Debut album "MINT" is available now and of course also contains “No Roots”. Here you can find more clips from Alice's appearance on Ten Years TV Noir.
