Undo Her

Alejandra O'Leary - Undo Her

Release 2024/01/19
"Undo Her" is the latest and greatest experimental pop-rock-electro single from indie recording artist Alejandra O'Leary.

O'Leary's adventurous musical spirit and ability to effortlessly meld the sounds of diverse musical eras and sonic palettes have charmed and awed audiences since her debut album Nothing Out Loud (2009). Drawing inspiration from artists as diverse as Liz Phair, Blur, Madonna, The Beatles, The Strokes, The Smiths and Britney Spears, O'Leary has amassed a devoted following across the United States and Latin America.

In November 2023, Rolling Stone published an article about Alejandra's career: "It's strange that the world doesn't know more about Alejandra O'Leary, who has released six albums of original songs since 2009. Two forceful and unmistakable currents are felt in her music: first, a fascinating evocation of the Beatles, and second, the legacy of the music of the 1990s that gifted us with incredible female artists like Dolores O'Riordan, Sheryl Crow, Sarah McLachlan, Jewel, Lisa Loeb, and so many others."

Staying true to these molecular influences, "Undo Her" marks a turning point in Alejandra's music. This release finds her moving away from the strictly guitar-based rock n' roll of her previous releases and into the realm of increasingly synthetic and electronic musical inspirations.

"During the pandemic I started experimenting in my home studio every day to see if I could come up with sounds I'd never heard before," she says. "I'm always recording, it's the work of my life. I am fascinated with the process or recording and reaching for new sounds."

In "Undo Her", the lyrics play with a pop narrative while the music pulses to a different vibration, hinting at darker and urges below the surface.

One of the most captivating elements of "Undo Her" is the track's fusion of contrasting sonic elements. O'Leary expertly blends both lo-fi and hi-fi instrumental performances in "Undo Her", creating a dynamic sound that dances between mechanical and natural tones.

The recording process for "Undo Her" found O'Leary transitioning seamlessly between bedroom and professional studio environments, giving the track qualities of both gritty intimacy and pop sheen.

"Undo Her" was composed by Alejandra O'Leary and features O'Leary on keyboards, synth bass, drum loops, and vocals. The track also features Todd Hutchisen and Jamie Church on guitars and Joe Beninati on drums.
