It’s both distraught and serene, like the calm pocket inside the eye of the storm.

With a dramatic swing from pizzicato strings, to hi-tempo groove, to orchestral hits and a violin glissando that might remind you of a spy thriller, ALYA demonstrates her massive theatrical range and a penchant for high emotion. It’s both distraught and serene, like the calm pocket inside the eye of the storm.

This song serves as a musical energy shot: it is potent, murky, and invigorating. Puppet Strings delivers on an elevated pop sound with a high-art backbone, combining the peculiar abandon of Bjork with the stone cool of St. Vincent.

Alya is rock and jazz and pop and classical and almost every other genre you can think of thrown into a pot. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
