Premiere: – Gianna Alessi – “Night Mentality”


Gianna Alessi’s powerful, soulful vocal presence leads stellar new track “Night Mentality,” a suavely entrancing piece of R&B-laden pop with smooth guitars and twinkling keys. A nice bridge at 03:07 shows a melodic, passionate turn. “Night Mentality” is a well-constructed track that we’re happy to premiere, one that shows the NYC-based artist’s strengths well.

Alessi’s work as a vocalist began at the age of nine, when her grandmother Maria Leone – a former soprano at the Metropolitan opera – gave the young Alessi a voice lesson. Now based in NYC again after performing across the US and Europe, Alessi is working with producer Carey Clayton, who aids in channeling her consuming vocal talents into a convincing aesthetic with soul, R&B, and pop vibes. Alessi begins a residency at Groove in NYC’s West Village this summer.

“Night Mentality” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
