|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SEPTEMBER 14, 2018
Having been thrust into the music industry at barely 14 years of age, ALEXA MELO has remained true to her artistic vision without pause, including opting out of a major label record deal with Interscope Records who had attempted to mold her with a more mainstream narrative. ALEXA’s dedication and perseverance allowed her to pursue an independent route, releasing her self-titled debut LP which garnered a massive online following including over 2 million views on YouTube and over 50k followers.
Unfortunately, shortly after her rising success, ALEXA was forced to go on a short hiatus due to an emergency vocal surgery and recovery period. Back with a renewed sense of passion and vulnerability, ALEXA will release her aptly-titled sophomore EP, “MUTE”, on October 12. This time around, as the sole writer, producer, and instrumentalist, her passion and originality shines through in an even more avant-garde way. The EP’s debut single, “DOPE SICK”, was coined as “grunge-pop” by PopDust, who premiered the intense and macabre music video, seen HERE.
ALEXA is excited to share a new track and accompanying music video for the EP’s first track, “LOYALTY“, which she wrote about self-realization of losing oneself in a relationship. Check out the freeing video steaming below or directly on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3x-imPutoVc.
