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.

 

Meiko Zombie Cover

Meiko Releases Cranberries Cover

Long known for her seductively haunting voice, singer-songwriter Meiko released “Zombie” today, the first single from her upcoming covers album, Playing Favorites (Chesky Records). The timing of the first release comes as a tragic and unfortunate result of the untimely passing of The Cranberries front-woman Dolores O’Riordan on January 15th.

Meiko says, “I recorded this version about a month ago to include on a covers album I’ve been working on. Even though it’s a heavy song, I wanted to slow it down and play it a bit more delicately because I wanted the energy to match how the lyrics make me feel. I hope I’ve done it justice.”

Meiko’s “Zombie” remake has already garnered airplay on radio stations across the U.S., including KCRW and KCSN Los Angeles, WRGX New York, WRNR Baltimore, WYCE Grand Rapids, WAPS Akron, Lightning 100 Nashville, and KWGS Tulsa (among others).
