One-woman band, pronoun (Alyse Vellturo) releases her new single ‘you didn’t even make the bed’ (Rhyme and Reason Records) today, taken from her forthcoming record due Spring 2019.
pronoun sings of her frustrations of a break up that ended with a messy apartment, in the new track that maintains her niche, lo-fi sound and post-punk sensibilities blended with pop aesthetics that has garnered praise from the likes of The New York Times, NPR, Stereogum, NYLON and Uproxx
She explains- “I wrote this when I got home after an ex had just moved out and left it kind of a mess, when I just wanted to scream at the sky, when it was the final straw.” pronoun explains, “It transitions from the sad, defeated phase of a break up in to the angry one. This whole record addresses that phase, the one where you’re like “really…REALLY?!”.
Back in 2016, pronoun released her debut EP, ‘There’s no one new around you,’ an ode to the Tinder message one receives once they’ve reached the end of all eligible contenders on the app. The four track EP is filled with delicate rock tracks that were all written, recorded, and produced by Vellturo herself after a strenuous breakup. She has since toured stateside with the likes of Turnover and Basement, launched her own record label, played SXSW twice (and threw an official showcase in 2018), premiered her lead single off her forthcoming album ‘run’ on Stereogum, and most recently ‘wrong’ on NPR, with her new releases garnering further attention from The New York Times, Billboard, NYLON and more.
