alxxa – Hung Up

alxxa

Not only does alxxa have a degree in physics, she also appears to have a pretty good grasp on how the musical universe works.

Her new track ‘Hung Up’ is bang on point, with relatable lyrics that gently flow over soft keys and alxxa’s smooth vocals.

“Hung Up’ is a very special song for me,” shares alxxa. “It was the first song I wrote when I moved to Los Angeles…alone, sitting at the piano, all in about an hour or so. It was a combination of shitty relationships, bad habits, nasty injuries, toxic work environments, poor self-image…you name it. Realizing I needed a change, I packed my things and drove across the country. The week long drive cleared my head and released a lot of the negative energy I had been harboring for a long time. This song describes the toxic cycle I was living in, at war with my surroundings and with myself.”

Nina Luna – String

It’s about the anguish of a romantic connection that cannot be fulfilled. You know the type where you can’t sleep at night thinking about this person over and over again. You can really feel the torment through Nina and co-producer CATALINE‘s use of synths and orchesttral percussion.
