Alaska Reid Debuts New Single “French Fries”
Alaska Reid will release her debut album Disenchanter, on July 14th via Luminelle Recordings. Today, Reid shares the final single before the arrival of the LP. “French Fries” is out today alongside a visualizer, and of the song Reid says, “‘French Fries” is a story song about the evolution of a friendship. I wanted it to feel like a movie where you are at once sitting with your friend in a diner laughing over cold french fries and dumb stuff, but at the same time there is an undercurrent of reality between you two; splintering paths, bad boyfriends, frustration, love and loss. In terms of production, A. G. Cook had the vision of making the beginning feel like the start to one of my shows: super intimate, just guitar and vocals.”
Disenchanter is a dreamscape of Reid ’s West, from Park County, Montana (where she moved to at 4 years old from Michigan) to her now adopted city of Los Angeles – garnering inspiration from both places to craft her brand of “Mountain Pop.” Written while touring with Porches, Charli XCX, Magdalena Bay, Maya Hawke, and Caroline Polachek), Disenchanter draws on the deep traditions of American country songwriting, the big, gritty guitars of Northwestern grunge, and the unrushed ease of Southern California living, all complemented by the inventive production style of Cook.
