Alé’s first single of the new year is a pop anthem created to start off 2022 on a high note. Expressing teenage angst and coming of age-esque emotions, “New Years” is all about celebrating where we are now, whether we are in love, broken up, uplifted or down bad. Drawing influence from early 2000/10s pop, the single’s sound is backed by Y2K style artwork, featuring bead necklaces representative of playfulness and extravagance. The drowned out vocals and big chorus aim to recreate the nostalgia of being around your friends and listening to your favorite song really loud. Beautiful mono-dream-esque chaos. The song is bright and colorful and should feel like confetti in your hair and glitter on your face, sugar on your lips and neon in your eyes.
“New Years” kicks off a new era of punk-dream-controlled pop chaos. The song depicts the feeling of butterfly-induced anxiety when you wonder if the person you kissed last night for the new years ball drop will still think something of you the next day. Wondering if they were the one or it was just some stupid, wonderful moment.
With a new sound reminiscent of the modern hyperpop genre, 21-year-old Manhattan native, Alé is a musical triple-threat. Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and producer, Alé only needs a few instruments and a laptop to execute his vision, bringing live instrumentation and pop, hip-hop, and rock influences, to the digital world. Alé grew up performing around New York City and has shared the stage with iconic artists such as Green Day, Joan Jett, Alice Cooper, Bonnie Raitt, Paul Shaffer, Usher, and Wiz Khalifa. He has spent the past few years playing and collaborating with many young, up-and-coming artists in the indie, pop, and hyperpop scenes. Songs off Alé’s debut EP, “The Party” were featured on playlists such as Spotify’s Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds: Pop, Tidal’s New in Indie, and Apple’s New in Pop. With a strong emphasis on his live show, Alé has been playing shows around the city and has been getting ready for his next project.
