ALLA | ALBATROSS | Single Release

Singer-songwriter and producer ALLA releases 80s infused shimmer pop tune

With layered guitars and hazy airy vocals, the new number from the Romanian songstress and multi-instrumentalist is a salt air infused sun-soaked anthem that intertwines melancholy, poptimism and a dash of 80s nostalgia in a fresh and unusual manner.

ALLA stays true to her trademaked approach to songwriting, disguising the rather dark or strange subject matters she approaches in her lyrics by enveloping them in unassuming synthy vibes and charming laid back melodies.

Based on the rich symbolism that surrounds the animal whose name it carries, Albatross takes its inspiration from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, a XVIIIth Century poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge that establishes the albatross as both an omen of good or bad luck, as well as a metaphor for a burden to be carried as penance.

Bucharest based classically trained musician ALLA started studying music at 6 years old as a pianist and guitarist and started writing, composing and producing her own music at 13 years old. The daughter of a famous 70s/80s singer in highly oppressive communist Romania, ALLA grew up surrounded by music and believing in it as the universal language of mending whatever is broken.

Now a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, theatre and film composer and music producer, ALLA has already toured all over Europe with various music projects and played some of the biggest stages in the country in both the pop/electronic as well as the classical music world, from Untold Festival to The National Romanian Opera.

From bubbly alt-pop to dark electronica, from layered acoustic folk to classical contemporary compositions, ALLA’s music remains at its core a journey of self discovery through one’s craft. Flawed, vulnerable and honest.
