Former VRSTY guitarist turned solo act, Marlene Mendoza’s balance of blistering breakdowns with soaring melodies sets the foundation for an atmospheric and mesmerizing delivery.
New Noise are proud to premiere the video for Mendoza’s latest single, “Lost Control,” below:
Mendoza’s songs are delivered with an abundance of heart and a thoughtful execution.
Completing a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Music and multiple national runs as a touring guitarist have ensured that Mendoza’s technical and theoretical expertise is prominent—something which rings true across “Lost Control.”
With her solo material, Mendoza continues her fight as an ardent champion for the representation of Latina women in heavy music.
On the release of “Lost Control,” Mendoza states:
“I am excited to share my newest single called ‘Lost Control.’ This song is very personal to me and I produced this song in my little home studio.
I really wanted to talk about how it is easy to get lost in thinking about the worst-case scenario and losing sense of reality due to traumatic experiences. I feel like this would be relatable especially since we are all living in the middle of a pandemic.”
