Hailing from Denver, Colorado, alt-pop artist Makena has today released her debut single called "3am". Recorded in Brooklyn and produced by Sho Ishikura and Adrien Peters at Treehouse Studios, "3am" is a paradoxical summer tune that combines upbeat melodies and fun production with lyrics that give listeners a look into a dark and dysfunctional relationship. Drawing from influences such as Sia, Lorde, and Zella Day, Makena brings a dark and vulnerable edge to alternative pop while "3am" provides a glimpse into the raw and unfiltered style of writing that we can expect from her upcoming releases.
Speaking on the track, Makena says:
"My goal was to paint a picture of this drug and alcohol driven relationship between two people that weren’t really in the place to be committed to each other but also weren’t ready to be alone."
