With a name like AlienBlaze, it’s no surprise that the British singer, songwriter and guitarist concocts an unfamiliar and otherworldly sound. Refusing to stay within boundaries and categories, this musician has formulated a distinct sound and style that fuses itself deep within your brain. Her latest single “Enemies With Benefits” is the perfect example of this magical and powerful potion she has made, and is some of her fiercest work to date, as we see her enter her villain-era.
Thematically “Enemies With Benefits” is a powerful response to an imbalanced relationship. AlienBlaze shares, "This is one of my favourite songs I’ve written so I hope my audience will love the new record as much as I do. I guess I’m in my ‘villain era’ now with this song. I drew a lot of inspiration from watching the fluctuation of relationships in Gossip Girl and so to a degree this song is an empowered breakup record, whether that be in a friendship or a relationship or whatever."
Featuring grungey guitars, throbbing basslines and crashing percussion, this track is relentless. AlienBlaze’s vocals soar brightly as she sings, “I feel like you want to see me fail, I want to stamp all over your ego with my platform heel, It’s just a game we play, but who’s the bigger player.” Demanding your attention, “Enemies With Benefits” will leave you feeling empowered.
