Listen to AllegrA’s hesitant but assured “My Pillow is My Punching Bag”
BeforeAllegrA releases their self-titled debut LP next week, they’ve shared a second single from the album. “My Pillow is My Punching Bag” is full of the soft energy AllegrA expertly weaves into their songs — from the project’s first release My Legs are Growing to the recent “I’m An Introvert” single, AllegrA’s distinctive sound is filled with blunt expression, vivid imagery, and bright and steady melodies.
Carried by bandleader Allegra Eidinger’s warm vocals, the driven and upbeat new track takes on the complicated role of the observer: “When I dream about you, I’m watching from the staircase … I can’t see your face in the mirror, staring back at me,” Eidinger sings, hesitant but assured all at once. Listen below.
