Los Angeles, CA — Rising alt-pop artist, Amiena, has released her alluring new single, “Great Escape,” the third song off of her forthcoming album, Flares & Halos. You can stream “Great Escape” on all platforms now and watch the video on YouTube.
A hip backtrack mixed with Amiena’s impassioned and controlled vocals, “Great Escape” is about a fall from grace. A power play in what could have been a love song. “Great Escape” turns what would have been a sensual love song into a stylish farewell. This, coupled with a genre-bending backtrack produced by Lars Deutsch, is the perfect marriage of sultry vocals and sway-worthy beats. With R&B influences on her new song, a compelling, nostalgic sound is delivered through inventive production. “It could have been a love song, ‘you know the scent, you know the taste’.. and now it is more of a cat and mouse tale,” Amiena elaborates.
The music video that accompanies this new single is just as alluring and mysterious as the song. Moody pink, purple and blue lighting illuminates a seductive yet enchanting cast on Amiena setting the scene for a heist story that adds a new level to the lyrics of the song. The enigmatic songstress is shown in a wedding dress at a run-down motel, suggesting she is a lady-in-waiting for a sunglasses and hat-clad man who looks anything but trustworthy. The tables are turned when Amiena swaps this wedding dress for the man’s leather jacket ensemble to pull off a heist in the last shot of the video.
Amiena is a Los Angeles-based alt-pop artist who brings all the magnetic extravagance of her city into her music. With publications such as Female Magazine, Vacancy Magazine, and Divine Magazine taking a deep interest in her tantalizing songwriting ability, Amiena is one to chase after in the pop scene. Her latest alt-pop single, “Great Escape,” off her upcoming album Flares & Halos, is about a post-relationship fallout detailing honesty and hypocrisy. “Great Escape” is available for download and streaming on all digital music platforms now, and the video may be viewed on YouTube.
