Alexa Valentino has just released a new single, and it has mesmerised us all! ‘Angel’ is a soft anthem of heartache that talks to those who have been painted unjustly as the bad guy in a relationship. ‘Angel’ is THE song to listen to when you are in the throes of heartache.

Shedding light on those that have been mistreated and lied about in the wake of a ruined relationship, ‘Angel’ speaks to a common aspect of the human experience; heartbreak. In this case, Valentino details the confusion and hurt when your ex spreads false stories about you, and makes you out to be a villain, and themselves, an angel. Though an ugly situation, it is not an uncommon one, and this universality attracts listeners and allows them to connect with ‘Angel’ easily.

‘Angel’ is delivered to us with Valentino’s silky smooth vocals. Holding no pretentiousness, the vulnerability in her voice is touching. Combined with the piano accompaniment, everything blends together seamlessly to create a delicate, open and emotive listening experience. 

Valentino has really delivered with ‘Angel’, and it is safe to say that it has become a regular on our playlists. We cannot wait to see what Alexa Valentino will come up with next!
