“Getting out into nature, out of my routine, and unplugging resulted in some of the most joyful and peaceful moments of my life.” -Alice Limoges
New York, NY-Alice Limoges, is ready to explore new territory in her latest single, “Yellowstone.” The release is her first new track to stream in 2019, since her debut music video, “Hungry for a Vice,” last year. Limoges’s rollicking new refrain is the result of her finding peace along a five-day trip through the Indian Himalayan Mountains. “Yellowstone” opens with a powerful piano riff that drives the song along like a group of good friends on a road tripping adventure. A distorted, descending guitar line falls in place as Alicesings out lyrics illustrating her total abandonment of “city lights,” exchanging them for stars that will “light up the dark.” In reference to modern attachment to technology. She says, “I’ve begun to love my chains,” but “won’t let my chains be my life.”
The tune carries a sense of urgency in detaching from technological leases that dictate our lives in this age. Limoges empowers listeners to “lose yourself” and join her on a journey of unplugging and reconnecting with nature. “Let’s go to Yellowstone, and let’s go tonight!” she belts out. “You feel like [Facebook and Instagram] is the only way to connect with people, but the most important thing is to get out into the world and be in a place where nothing is inhibiting your humanness.”-Alice Limoges
The track was produced in Queens, NY with Jon Jetter and Rob Cleaveland of Right Angle Recording and features David Millen (guitar), Martine Wade (drums), and Sean Power (bass).
Artist Bio Originally from Maine, Alice Limoges has built a following in New York and throughout the Northeast over the past couple years. The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has performed at festivals and venues including The Campfire Festival, Columbia University, Bard College, The Bowery Electric and The Cutting Room (where “Hungry for a Vice” was filmed).
Lemonade Magazine said, “the Maine-native carves out a special sub-genre of jazz that takes soul and jazz and modernizes it with a hint of indie rock that matches her soulful vocals.”
Alice’s sound combines a variety of instrumental arrangements, centering on her vocals, piano and guitar as main instruments. Her style has been described as “Indie Jazz Rock” and is the result of her fuzing together a broad taste of artistic influences.
