Yesterday acclaimed songwriting magazine, American Songwriter, exclusively premiered Alyssa Trahan’s newest single “Psychology” and an acoustic performance to accompany it. Written by Trahan and Kyle Rife and self-produced, “Psychology” is a sassy mid-tempo track that is the perfect take on what it is like dating in 2020. It’s a cool girl song with a catchy melody, relatable lyrics and fun to listen to. Listen to the single here.
“I’m so excited for everyone to hear this song! It’s my take on dating in the 21st century and is definitely a modern pop-country sound. I hope it makes people want to dance and reminds listeners that a constant cycle of on again/off again isn’t love, it’s psychology!” says Trahan.
“Looking past the underlying layers of meaning in ‘Psychology,’ the more immediate quality of note is its very polished production style. Trahan’s vocal is clean, clear, and given plenty of space to expand with reverb, even once the very snappy snare beat and piercing banjo plucks kick in. The song as a whole, is slick and well-made. It caters to Trahan’s modern country aesthetic without question.” – Kira Grunenberg, American Songwriter
Alyssa Trahan is a true jill-of-all-trades and should be the model of how to survive and thrive during a pandemic without a label. Not only is she a talented songwriter, but she can also produce her own music as well as play pretty much all the instruments on the records. Trahan also creates her own cover art, lyric videos and even edits her own videos. There is nothing the woman can’t do.
