NEW ALBUM: ALAINA CASTILLO | PARALLEL UNIVERSE PART 1
The 21-year-old newcomer Alaina Castillo's first full-length will be released in multiple parts, with the first, "Parallel Universe Part 1". With her previous music, she made waves making tender, acoustic slow burners that highlighted her warm and soft vocal ability. On her debut album, though, she firmly cuts loose and embraces capital pop on an album that sounds wonderfully fresh and vibrant. Opening track ‘Pocket Locket’ is a song of the summer contender that swings playfully and confidently. In contrast, tracks like the title track and ‘Down 4 U’ are packed full of future pop sounds with insistent and inventive productions aligned to Alaina’s developed songwriting as she creates her own little world. The seven tracks album offers an enticing tease into the future of someone who seems right at home in the pop game and is set to soar.
