Pronoun unveils new track, plays Bowery on November 6th

Alyse Vellturo has been releasing a steady stream of singles from her solo project, pronoun, this year. We’ve already heard “run” and “wrong,” in the lead up to pronoun’s debut album--which is due out later this year via Rhyme & Reason. Today we’re getting a new track called “you didn’t even make the bed.” Despite its dreamy quality, “you didn’t even make the bed” is written out of spite, and specifically, out of an all-too-familiar bitterness towards an ex. 

Vellturo details, “I wrote this when I got home after an ex had just moved out and left it kind of a mess, when I just wanted to scream at the sky, when it was the final straw. It transitions from the sad, defeated phase of a break up in to the angry one. This whole record addresses that phase, the one where you're like "really...REALLY?!" 

The upcoming album is shaping up to be something spectacular, and you can catch pronoun this November when she hits the road with Justin Courtney Pierre (of Motion City Soundtrack) on tour. Listen to “you didn’t even make the bed” below, and see pronoun live at Bowery Ballroom on November 6th. 

New single and basketball-filled video for "Wrong" from pronoun

The streak of singles from pronoun -- the solo indie pop project of Alyse Vellturo -- continues with "wrong", a track with a catchy riff and a lyric addressing loneliness and ended relationships. Along with the new song comes a video of Vellturo playing basketball against a team of suit-and-tie clad drones, all of whom eventually become her teammates dressed in pink. Those drones -- played by her fellow artists on the Sleep Well label such as Cape Francis, Charles Fauna, and Sulene -- symbolize Vellturo turning her feelings from lonely to positive and self-affirming through the power of fun and freedom. Watch the video for "wrong" below. - Will Sisskind

Pronoun unveils new singles + plays Brooklyn Bazaar on 05.26

Since 2016, Brooklyn artist pronoun, the brainchild of songwriter Alyse Vellturo, is on a catchy single roll: her debut EP "There's No One New Around You" exposed a talent able to forge memorable yet intimate pop songs dealing with troubled personal feelings, in the tradition of The Magnetic Fields. In 2018 the project has already released two singles, "Run" (streaming below) and "Wrong," which was recently included in Stereogum's "Best 5 Songs of the Week." Alyse will be performing live with band at Brooklyn Bazar on May 26.

pronoun performs at Sleep Well Records’ Silent Night Fest 12.10

“Now I’m snowed in while you’re out there in California. Stuck here thinking about how you said I did nothing for you,” Alyse Vellturo sings on pronoun’s “Snowed In // There’s No One New Around You.” Though it may be a little early to expect snow, the sentiment in pronoun’s music is always relevant. The Brooklyn artist captures the emotional sincerity of earlier work by acts like Death Cab For Cutie and Tegan and Sara, mixing it with the propulsive, dance-inspired back beats that have characterized both group’s more recent output. On December 10th, pronoun will perform at Zone One at Elsewhere for Silent Night Fest, hosted by Vellturo’s own Sleep Well Records. While the odds of getting snowed in at that point are slim, pronoun can be counted on for an emotionally stirring performance. – Cameron Carr, photo by Sofie Vasquez

Brooklyn based artist pronoun drops moody single "a million other things"

For most, "we're on a break" represents a hellish, liminal state in a relationship where the impending doom of a break-up looms menacingly over the small hope of reconciling. "a million other things," the first single dropped by Brooklyn-based artist, pronoun (aka Alyse Vellturo) perfectly captures that limbo state--the doomed hope--by folding heart-tugging lyrics into otherwise bright and driving instrumentals. The single manages to feel deeply personal, yet instantly relatable--a striking first release from an up-and-coming artist, with welcome references to a class pop act of the '80s like The Cars. Stream "a million other things" below, and keep your eyes peeled for an EP release from pronoun coming out soon. - Olivia Sisinni
