Idarose talks about her electrifying sound, going viral on Tik Tok, and more

Idarose's viral Tik Tok video has been viewed over 1.7 million times and has over half a million likes.

South Florida native Alexis, also known by her stage name Idarose has taken the internet by storm after going viral on Tik Tok, teasing a melody of her new song, "When I Don't Have You." Idarose remarks that the tune came to her after waking up from a dream.

"It’s the first single I’ve released in a bit," she said. "I got the melody for this song in a dream...this happens to me sometimes, but if I don’t remember to record it, I usually forget the melody. This time, when I woke up, I immediately picked up my phone and recorded a voice memo of what I remembered. Later that day, I came up with some lyrics to fit the melody, and the story and production grew around that."

The song made its debut in late January of 2021 and has received much success. Idarose's electrifying sound and captivating lyrics have made her classify her music as "new-age hopeless romantic[...] dropped [...] in a Wes Anderson movie" but with more kicks and snares.

Idarose names some of her musical influences are the queens of electronic pop such as Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Maggie Rogers, and BANKS. In addition, she credited Frank Sinatra and more modern musicians such as Anderson Paak and Vince Staples as influences to her versatile sound.

Idarose states that the response to her new song, "When I Don't Have You," has "blown [her] away." Noting that she is grateful for the amount of support and following she has gotten following the viral video, Idarose is happy that fans have reacted the way they did.

"I posted the little clip to my 2,900 followers, and now I have 39,000 Tik Tok followers, over 1.7 million views, and thousands of people asking me to hear it as a full song," she said. "The transformation has been unreal and a catalyst for inspiration regarding her music."

Idarose promises new music coming very soon, yet has not given an exact release date and has stated," it is all happening very soon." The singer and viral Tik Toker have gained a substantial social media following, resulting from her viral video and a more extensive fan base for her music.

She recently did an IG live interview with Remixd Magazine, which you can check out below!
