Slither, Slide and Dance to Alina Bea’s Sexy ‘Get It Off’
Everybody wanna sound like Björk. Or The Knife. Or Zola Jesus. Or one of 100 million others that employ challenging electronic beats with strong female vocals. But hardly anyone (read: no one) ever nails it, instead losing their own identity in the pursuit of emulation. Immolation through emulation.
Alina Bea isn't a victim, and if the new track "Get It Off" is any indication, she'll be pushing boundaries and gathering followers in the meantime. "Get It Off" feels like a Pretty Hate Machine B-side, save for her breathy, slithering and somewhat paranoid vocal. It's the kind of song that's probably playing in the club when you spy a sexy someone dancing afar out of the corner of your eye — it's danceable, hummable and just plain good. Check it out below and order yours via a singles compilation due in November on New Professor Music. "Get It Off" will be available on iTunes, Spotify, etc., on November 4.
