Victoria Alex is freaking out with teenage angst in her cathartically explosive new single and video Screaming — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“The music is a lot about the stupid things we do as teens, and all the people you meet along the way,” explains the Toronto pop-punk singer-songwriter. “It’s music about falling in love, and making mistakes, but also about trying to find your purpose in this world. The hope is that the music helps people get through their own stories as well.
“I’m unafraid to speak the truth for my generation in a way that everyone can hear,” she continues. “I’m a very sensitive, loving person, and helping people is part of me. I’ve always been that way — that person who feels too hard. My mom says it’s in our family’s genes. While it can sometimes get me into trouble, it actually helps with my music. I work with my producer and share stories of my most meaningful experiences, and how I feel, and the music unfolds from there.”
Supercharged yet introspective, Screaming reflects this intersection of terror, triumph and talent with a deft ease as it blasts through speakers. The unapologetic and piercingly magnetic release comes out swinging, setting a new stage for the singer-songwriter and former Mini Pop Kid who also appeared as an inaugural contestant on the premiere season of The Launch.
Now 19, the multi-talented dynamo has channelled her unique sound and perspective into a forthcoming EP, tackling topics such as not being seen or heard, the highs and lows of being a strong female in today’s society, falling in love for the first time, finding your place in the world and more.
