Alt-Pop songtress ALITA shares new emotional single “Too Close”, but has been ready to take on the world with her genre bending music from a young age. Singing Mariah Carey at age 6, and writing poetry to express herself, she continues to lean into her roots as she makes music. She pulls inspiration from her personal playlists of Radiohead, Mumford & Sons, and The 1975, as she seeks to tell honest stories through her relatable and open lyrics.
ALITA has released two singles, “If I Have To” and “Human Nature”, that explore the complex questions she hopes to create more dialogues for. “Spoken word reminds me that pop music, music in general, is better when it explores questions like: What does it mean to be a certain race? What does it mean to be a woman? Why do we do the things we do? What is really holding me back from saying or doing or being the person I want to be? Literature and poetry and performances all impact my writing because it reminds me to go deeper,” shared ALITA.
She celebrates the release of her new single today, “Too Close”, where she explores her experiences in what she deems a ‘situationship’. This beautiful breakup ballad tells the story of two people figuring out what they mean to one another. Yet ALITA gives us a fresh narrative told from her partner’s perspective to reveal her own anxieties, “it’s that moment of fear in a new relationship, when you realize you’re past the point of return,” she shared, and admitted “cutting things off is really hard and releasing this song feels like a bookend to that whole situation.”
Embracing the unconventional elements, ALITA is sure to continue creating unique lyrics and nonchalant, yet intimate tempos that bring us into her world, while helping us reflect on our own.
