Buzzbands.LA Premieres Alexa Melo’s “HOLLOW” Music Video

Buzzworthy Los Angeles music blog Buzzbands.LA premiered today the music video for Alexa Melo‘s latest single “HOLLOW”.

The song, already receiving regular support from Alexa’s new hometown Alt-outlet KITS (ALT 105.3) San Francisco (5 weeks in a row on their “Soundcheck” new music show), is also garnering specialty airplay on KCRW, KLOS and KCSN Los Angeles (among others).

Shot guerilla-style in a one-way tunnel next to the Bay Bridge in SF, the one-camera video was produced/directed by Daniel Garcia. “HOLLOW” was written and produced by Melo, who also played all the instruments on the track. You can find it on her latest MUTE EP which was independently released in October of this year.

Mermaed Story Continues To Develop

Unsigned Los Angeles-based four-piece mermaed is continuing to build its story – after their debut single “IDIOT” spent 3 weeks as the #1 most-requested song on KROQ Los Angeles‘ “Locals Only” show, tastemaker Alternative ALT 105.3 San Francisco picked up on the buzz and played it this past weekend. The song is in regular rotation on Triple A outlet WAPS Akron, OH, and Apple Music added it to their ‘Breaking Rock’ playlist (one of the very few unsigned acts on that list).

mermaed plays a KROQ Locals Only-presented show on October 24 at Resident in DTLA, opening for hotly-tipped Canadian band Cleopatrick (get ticket info HERE).

It was also announced that mermaed has been added to the Taco Bell ‘Feed The Beat’ Fall 2018 lineup, which will bring them additional exposure and promotional opportunities.

mermaed’s debut five-song EP is currently being mixed.
