Gray Merino it show us “Origami”created in December 2022 during the artistic residency that the band carried out at the Worm Sound Studios in Rotterdam (Netherlands) by the hand of Musika Bulegoa. This third single from their new stage has been produced by JEWLN, member of the trio, and mixed by Ed Is Dead in the Fashion Beat Team studios in Madrid. About their sound they tell us that “their uptempo beat, which draws from the UK Garage, hides organic sounds recorded and sampled by the band: objects that collide against the table, friends' laughter, noises from Dutch traffic lights and even samples from an artist at the same time. that Merina Gris admires. Sounds to which are added the legendary and unreleased Korg PS-3010 synthesizer, as well as Sara's wandering voice, more relaxed than ever, in a mixture of disappointment, acceptance and relief.”

“Origami” is another piece of the trio's evolution after their acclaimed debut album, “Zerua Orain”published in March 2022 and with production of Ed Is Dead. Thanks to this, the band performed at the Bilbao BBK Live, as well as in countries such as Sweden, Serbia and the Netherlands, collaborated with groups such as La MODA or Delaporte, and published the single 'Nadie Cuando Lloro' with Hofe, which was followed , already in 2024, 'lilili'.
