Arden Alexa Speaks Her Heart Out On “Stupid Boy”
Taking inspiration from Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and the pop princesses who soundtracked her childhood and teen years, Arden Alexa has a unique sound has been developed by infusing her own quirky and youthful indie style into the upbeat anthems she knows and loves.
Born and raised in San Francisco, Arden spent the after school hours of her high school years cutting her teeth in the Bay Area music scene. Her debut single, 2021’s “The Coast” was the world’s first glimpse of her artistic ability. This was followed by 2022’s “Day Dreams”, Arden’s first full length project: A six song EP that truly welcomes you into her universe of raw vocals and deeply personal lyricism.
Since embarking on her journey as a full time artist in June of 2022, Arden has been focused on polishing her craft and finding her sound. Her last release “Strawberry Pie” showed off a more modern side of her artistry while still displaying the same fun, exuberant personality of her previous releases. Her newest track, “Stupid Boy”, and the accompanying music video made in collaboration with her best friends is an ode to high school boys and the solo prom nights that (may or may not) follow.
Arden is super excited to share her new single + music video for “Stupid Boy”, set to release today.
Here’s what she had to say about the songwriting process: “Let’s be honest, high school boys can be clueless about romance. After experiencing this firsthand with a particularly dramatic unrequited love, I decided to write this song as an ode to high school boys. While channeling fun synth pop from the 80’s mixed with the indie music of today, the lyrics of this song say all of the things that I never had the chance to say to the boys I’ve loved”.
