ALITA – I’m Not Your Mother

Washington-native ALITA has unleashed one of the finest slices of pop-RnB that I’ve head the pleasure of listening to all week.

The track flows with a cinematic flair that gives us a sense of nostalgia, which contrasts beautifully against the refreshingly bold lyricism.

“A song about resistance and self-discovery in the face of modern romance; it explores the implicit and explicit expectations placed on women throughout history. And how empowering it feels to set yourself free from carrying someone else’s emotions on your back.”

ALITA – Bodies

One of the finest power-pop songs sent to me this week. A sound that masterfully embodies the sensuality and the strength of being a woman, by Seattle-based songstress ALITA.

“I’d wanted to write a song like ‘Bodies’ for a long time, but felt like the unconscious biases in the room would affect my writing and my openness… I was worried the heart of it would get lost in translation. Eventually I realised that I had all of the instinct to explore it by myself, so I did.”

New Music: ALITA

“‘Human Nature’ is a song about fatal attraction. It explores the subconscious, unhealthy stories we learn as children that end up informing toxic romantic behaviour as adults.”
