It's an intimate return from the pop newcomer...

Alayna has always wanted to make music with a certain intimacy, music that peers beneath the surface.

New Zealand born and New York based - guess she's obsessed with the 'new', huh? - she makes gossamer pop music, melodies draped in ethereal beauty.

New cut 'Bliss' is online now, dominated by that powerfully under-stated vocal and a sparse arrangement that lets each aspect find its way to the fore.

“I wanted to find a way to articulate the personal, intimate feeling of being completely at ease,” explains Alayna​, “Bliss​ feels like a sigh, a softening of shoulders and a comfort in a moment with someone. Bliss​ feels like pure, real love.”
