This event is all ages
The history of pop music is one of reinvention, replete with instances of people who, cutoff from resources and representation, have turned inward, mined themselves and remade culturein their own image. And so the story goes with Parisalexa, Seattle’s premiere triplehyphenate—singer-songwriter-producer—who continues to forge her own forward-lookingbrand of R&B tinged pop with the raw materials of the past.Earlier this year, Parisalexa emerged fully-formed with her debut EP Bloom, whichchronicles the course of a relationship—from its genesis to its greatest heights to its end and theresulting exercise in self-love.Now, close on Bloom’s heels, comes FLEXA, a four-track mixtape that represents adeparture for Parisalexa in both sound and theme. “When I was writing Bloom, I was in adifferent place,” Paris says. “I was falling in love, and writing my own story, and I wasreferencing a lot of older, more soulful sounds.” If Bloom is about a journey—that of falling inlove and discovering oneself—FLEXA is about what happens once you arrive.
