Emerging NYC-based alt-pop singer-songwriter Becky Krill is back with her new positive carefree summer song “Alive In The Summertime”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“I wrote Alive in the Summertime in the fall of 19′ when I wasn’t in a particularly great place,” said Krill. “I was feeling burnt out on life and wanted to write a song that would evoke the sweet spot of summer, when life is at its most carefree. As is often the case in my songwriting, this song was born out of fantasy. Nothing makes you feel alive like being in love. But being in love, in the summer and on a road trip without a single responsibility? Possibly the best thing that could ever happen to a person if you ask me. This song was an attempt at remembering that feeling. I worked closely with David Gagne of FANTAZMZ to write and produce the track. No other musicians were involved and this song was written and recorded in just 2 days. Michael McInnis of Michael McInnis Productions mixed the track and it was mastered by Adam Ayan of Gateway Mastering in Portland, Maine.”
Krill has concocted a sound all her own, delivering soulful vocals over warm, nostalgic synths and inspired beats. Inspired by a wide-range of influences including Ani Difranco, Sara Bareilles, TLC, The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Robyn, Becky recently released her debut single “Nightmare” featuring DJ QueCee of hip-hop duo, ViceVerses.
Prior to embarking on her solo journey, she led Brooklyn band, HoloMovement, through a debut album in 2018 and continues to release music periodically under that name. HoloMovement’s latest release “Moonflower Waltz” was written and co-produced by Becky. She has performed across the United States and has shared the stage with artists such as Parnhash & Coe, Kerry Blu, Nina Blue, FANTAZMZ, Catfish Seminar, Precious Gorgeous, Kita P, Paco the G Train Bandit and Mandella Eskia.
