“Bubblegum” is just one of the fiercely convictive unapologetically attitude-driven Pop hits on breaking artist Alissa.’s debut EP of the same title. If any track could be referred to as the 21st century equivalent to TLC’s No Scrubs, it’s Bubblegum.
From the first verse, you’ll be hooked into the RnB-laced mix by Alissa.’s scathing lyrical wit. Yet, Alissa.’s vocals match the same poised and perfectly pitched nature of the electronic instrumentals making it all too easy to get hooked into the mix.
Pop debuts don’t get much more promising than this empowering earworm which offers potent amounts of connectable resonance – especially if you’ve had recent encounters to wasters with ideas above their stations. Alissa.’s playfully antagonistic approach to RnB Pop isn’t one which you’ll forget in a hurry.
You can check out Alissa.’s single Bubblegum and the rest of their 3-track EP by heading over to Spotify.
