ALEXANDRA RIORDEN – “ANIMALS”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE MUSIC PREMIERE
Alexandra Riorden’s debut LP Angel City Radio is an abstract chronicle of the tumultuous healing process one endures after experiencing trauma, wrapped in a smoke-scented velvet curtain of shimmering indie-rock. Over the course of the album, Riorden explores the complexities of healing through independent but loosely connected vignettes. With twinkling guitars and and ambling rhythm section supporting Riorden’s expressive vocals, “Animals,” premiering today here at Spill, kicks off Angel City Radio as a direct response to a terrifying home invasion that Riorden experienced in Los Angeles which shocked her into a state of hypervigilance and distrust. “I’m torn by these conflicting desires to protect myself & hide away, and also wanting to connect with people and be open & romantic,” she says. “I had been pretty open and free-spirited before and all of a sudden I felt scared all the time and had a hard time trusting anyone. It spiraled out into so many different aspects of my life.” “Animals” is out everywhere tomorrow, April 29th, and Angel City Radio is out June 25th.
