Listen to Alice Merton’s ‘Vertigo’ from The L Word: Generation Q, Season 2, Episode 4

German-Irish alternative pop rock singer songwriter Alice Merton’s ‘Vertigo‘ was featured on The L Word: Generation Q on Sunday — The L Word: Generation Q, Season 2, Episode 4, “Lake House“.

The song was played as Dani’s father is being arrested.

Alice Merton‘s ‘Vertigo‘ is the singer’s latest single. It was released earlier this year and is one in a line of singles not connected to a full-length album. At least yet.

The pounding rock track came with an official music video featuring Merton in a dystopian world that she is trying to escape.

Like most of Merton’s work, as the singer tends to shy away from songs about love, ‘Vertigo‘ deals with her anxiety.

This time her anxiety about being in crowds and, in particular, going to clubs and always feeling out of place and claustrophobic.

The German-Irish indie singer’s music has also become a hit with TV show music supervisors recently.

That has allowed it to be licensed for play on popular shows like Station 19, Legacies, The Blacklist, Deception, Love Island (UK) and Skam Germany.

Listen to Alice Merton’s ‘Vertigo‘ as heard on this week’s episode of the LGBT drama The L Word: Generation Q in that music video below, and on the Spotify player.
