The debut single from newcomer Alissic, ‘Like’ has popped up out of nowhere with the polished style of a seasoned pro.
‘Who is Alissic?’, you may ask. Well, the story goes that nine months after her parents encountered a UFO after driving home from a pizza restaurant, Alissic was born. Does that answer your question?!
Really, she’s a 23-year-old artist who grew up in a small town in Brazil and was scouted by a modelling agency at the young age of 13 where she began her adventures travelling around the world only to realise she didn’t want to sell her face for a living, resulting in creating music in her bedroom.
Her unusual voice is at the heart of the eccentrism of the track. With a juxtaposition between her soft airy vocals against the aggressive and oftentimes punchy instrumental of the breakdown, there’s something about the layers of contrasting tones and countermelodies that her voice just melts over.
Avant-pop? From the vocals, to the production, the music video direction and the concept entirely, this is an audible art instillation – check it out below.
