Young Summer - Alright

Washington, DC-based artist Bobbie Allen, aka Young Summer makes her long-awaited return today with her brand new single called "Alright", her first original offering since her debut album, Siren was released in 2014. Lush, sentimental and chock-full of twinkling synths, "Alright" also serves as the first track to be lifted from her forthcoming EP, which is due out later this summer.

Speaking on the track, Young Summer explains:

"'Alright' is about unrequited love, loving someone but being unable to confess its. It's the trepidation we all have when we don't want to get hurt but we can't help but feel the way we do for someone. One of my favorite moments in the song is the line, 'Am I allowed to love you?' because so often I've felt that way. In that line there is the long awaited relief of a confession.

"'Alright' is a song that articulates fear and insecurity but maintains a protective armor sonically with its confident, glossy production. I love to juxtapose the meaning of a song with its sonic identity. An extremely personal song about fear and insecurity with upbeat, sparkling production is like sneaking vegetables into the listeners’ dessert and also a way for me to distract while I confess.

Listen to "Alright" below.
