Audrey Mika has recently released her latest single ‘Alive’ via RCA records and WOW, it’s so hard for us to put together our feelings into words. We are absolutely in love with this new song. Sonically or lyrically, it’s pure bliss. Written by Audrey, Midi Jones, Andrew Luce, Jesse Saint John, and Amisha Sarkar and produced by Midi Jones and Andrew Luce, this song showcases Audrey’s music caliber.
When asked abut her thoughts and inspiration for ‘Alive,’ Audrey said,
This song is a huge reminder to me to be thankful that I am even here and alive in this world and appreciate the ups and downs of life. It’s a reminder and affirmation that it’s okay to not always be okay and to surround yourself with people that look out for you. I’ve come to realize that I wanted to bring dancing and my music together and go back to this part of me. I think that dancing adds vulnerability and I felt it went hand in hand with this song. The dancing, the singing, and the lyrics show all the different sides of me and who I am. And I hope I can share, and inspire others to do the same and show them that they can trust themselves when things become uncomfortable.
‘Alive’ resonates with all of us on so many levels right now. While we all are going through difficult times amidst the pandemic, we should not forget that there is an ever-shining sun behind those dark clouds. It gives us hope that we’ll make it through ups and downs strongly enough. It’s a beautiful reminder to feel grateful that we are still alive and have a beautiful life to live and much more to look forward to. Because no dark cloud can forever prevent the sun from shining. This song is a dazzling collision of Audrey’s two worlds, dance, and music, together which she is incredibly passionate about and we all love a beautiful blend, don’t we?
With the likes of female powerhouses such as Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, and Dua Lipa, etc., Audrey’s insane vocals and high notes are truly gifted. The notes she hits in her songs are just so heavenly and otherworldly that can make anyone fall for her.

Till today, our minds are blown away with that high note on the 01:10 time stamp in her single ‘Chivalry’ so here’s a shout-out to that dope moment. If you haven’t already listened to it, quickly hit the play button below.
Inspired from her personal experiences beaded together in the lyrics, ‘Excuses’ deserves *chef’s kiss* for the overall concept as well as creatively using mannequins in the music video that went along with the track.
