Three years ago, we wrote about Alessandra De Rossi’s downtempo lullaby “Swept Away,” a collaboration with Archipelago’s Yan Yuzon.
Not to rest on her laurels yet, actress-singer Alessandra De Rossi teams up with Yan Yuzon (Pupil, Archipelago) on a wraithlike, triphop-drenched ballad enveloping the sensual and shamanist quality of her previous work. “Swept Away,” the new single off her upcoming sophomore album shepherds her to newer, darker pastures without fully departing her comfort zone. With Alex and Yan sharing vocal duties, and the instrumental pulse stitched together by hypnotic tinkers and atmosphere, the cumulative efforts evoke a gorgeous melting of voices, crashing while complimenting each other all at the same time.
Fast forward to 2016, the ethereal trip-hop single off Alessandra de Rossi’s album, Adrift is making rounds at the moment with a music video directed by actress/entrepreneur Meryll Soriano. The stylish black-and-white visual which features de Rossi and Marc Abaya at the brink of an emotional turmoil, is sensual without being provocative, compelling without the need for dramatic flourishes.
