ALAENA is the new wave of pop-grunge: a singer-songwriter, musician, director and all around creative, who embodies the same free-spirited badassery of her ’90s predecessors (Courtney Love, Britney Spears, No Doubt, P!NK). This Pittsburgh native swaps deathcore screams for angelic harmonies. As once former keyboardist of death metal band Winds of Plague, she’s now embracing her inner pop diva, finding solace in being the odd girl out.
Recognized as a living Andy Warhol painting, the DIY musician prepares to make a statement bigger than her own voice. Making her first statement of the new year, ALAENA releases new single, “It’s Not Me It’s You,” giving fans an anti-bullshit anthem to rock steady with. Staying authentic to her coined pop-grunge sound, she takes this punk-driven bassline and infuses with her twisted pop melodies, giving us a pinch of kick-ass in the chorus.
