A TALE OF FORTIFICATION.
Written and produced by ALYSS
ALYSS - “HYDRA” is released on 27th October
‘HYDRÅ’ was written & produced by ALYSS following the organic viral success of her track 'Pyramid’ amassing over 20 million streams and a signing with Colombia records. With nothing more than a layered, syncopated beat locking the tempo, it's the signature arpeggiated synths that define 'HYDRÅ's ability to capture your ear. Along with ALYSS‘ distinctive and captivating voice, you are hooked in to the track’s hypnotic groove. Beyond the main single, ‘HYDRÅ’ will also include an acoustic version with a string arrangement by her father (Royal Opera House violinist), as well as a remix by Simmerdown later this year. Adding to its allure, this song is also released as part of a 200 edition music NFT collection, infusing a unique digital dimension into its release following the huge success of ALYSS’ Answers NFT Collection earlier this year, which sold out in record time. The HYDRÅ artwork is a collaboration with Greenland-based 3D visual-music artist 1011 Theory.
“I’ve never made anything like HYDRÅ. She is one. A singular point that has roamed between the shadow & Æther of every cell for the past 7 years” - ALYSS
