Los Angeles-primarily based multi-instrumentalist Alvidrez and founding member of L.A. band Girl Friday, has shared the video for her debut single “Red,” a somber, guitar-blistering dirge that is delivered gorgeously by means of director Al Kalyk’s surreal vision. Playing to the melancholic scenery of a loved ones property, Alvidrez provides her droning cries via the filter of noisily sharp sonics adorned as she is in white-clown face-paint and a red suit. Significantly less a horror stint than it basically is, “Red” traces all that is emotionally visceral in Alvidrez’s voice. Guitars grate like nails against the walls as her vocals split and fray in out of blown-out speakers, and out of the discord Alvidrez paints in red a portrait of herself fully unmasked and vulnerable.
“The song came about in a moment of private crisis. I locate the only way to deal with my personal troubles is to make music and listen to the music of men and women going via related motions,” she mentioned of the inspiration behind the song. “Part of the magic of the musical expertise is becoming in the dark, feeling alone, and hearing a song which reminds you we are all in this collectively, and we all share fears and doubts. When I wrote this song i was in 1 of the locations I really feel safest, but abruptly it had turn into the most inhospitable location on the planet. I felt like I had produced 1 error immediately after an additional. I felt like a fool that no 1 was laughing at. I wanted to make the video in the similar location I felt these factors, surrounded by artifacts of my life at the time. I produced the video just like I produced the music, I produced it for me, to remind myself of anything I believed was essential and wonderful and really hard. It was essential to me that the video was directed by my companion Al Kalyk.”
Alvidrez’s eclectic sound and multi-instrumental minded music owes itself somewhat to the property she grew up in: raised by her father’s really like of Motown and her mother’s affinity to the hymns that have been sung in their church each Sunday. Her moniker is a nod to that previous, taken from her mother’s name. Alvidrez’s debut is intended to be a deeply private venture into mental overall health, loved ones, and really like.
