The Story Behind The Song: Cafeteria by Merakki

“’I got to school one day…’

That was literally how Merakki came together as a band. All 6 of us studied at the same university and we were friends before we became bandmates.

Our first single “Cafeteria” marked a significant point in our journey as a band. It was the first song we wrote together and it holds a special place in our hearts because it’s about our love for a food store that closed down in our university cafeteria. We were bummed when it shut down because it was our go-to place to get nuggets and peanut butter milkshakes in between classes. Hence, the song is about love – our love for the store. At the end of the day, we wanted our first single to be a song that was simple, yet meaningful to us!” – Merakki, Indie-Pop band
