We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Alexa Melo’s music video for her song “Loyalty” (watch it below). The track is taken from her forthcoming sophomore EP MUTE, which is scheduled to be released on October 12, 2018. You can pre-order the EP here.
Alexa Melo commented on the song:
‘Loyalty’ is a song I wrote about losing my integrity and identity in trade for the happiness and comfort of someone else. This song is me finally admitting to myself that I had become a slave to a relationship and that I could choose to leave whenever I want to.
About the artist:
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. This time around, as the sole writer, producer, and instrumentalist, her passion and originality shines through in an even more avant-garde way.
