With a background in business and sales, ALITA is truly a force that’s here to make a statement. The Seattle pop/R&B artist has been honing her craft for quite some time, but it wasn’t until this year that she officially began releasing music. Just one listen of her second single, “Human Nature,” will make you recognize her infinite potential and you’ll have no option but to keep ALITA on your radar.
Encompassing the soundscapes of lust and pursuit, “Human Nature” hears ALITA exploring the toxicity children are exposed through on a daily basis. With bouncy electronics and lively tambourines, “Human Nature” expresses a sorrowful message that’s contrasted with its joyous sonic approach. As ALITA sings about fatal attraction in the accompanying visual, we can’t help but acknowledge the plentiful colors used throughout the moody video, which perfectly parallels the vivid soundscape.
On “Human Nature,” ALITA reflected,
“The song was kind of monumental for me to write because it ended up being my groovy, pop-y response to a love that had gone sour, and the process of finding words and melodies to tell that story finally gave me the courage to let it go.”
