CALGARY — Local sultry dive rocker Alexa Borden is kicking off her 2017 with a rebellious start with the debut of her new single, “Monterey.”
The song was recorded at The Sound Priory Recording Studio alongside former bandmates Colin McDonald and Kurtis Urban, along with producer Kirill Telichev at the helm.
In an email to BeatRoute, Borden writes of her new tune: “‘Monterey’ is a story about a young girl who runs off with a dangerous member of a motorcycle gang to rebel against her oppressive and wealthy family. She falls in love with the liberty and is sucked into a world of drugs and crime. I’ve spent a lot of time in California. I was really inspired by Joshua Tree and the surrounding area. I have a fascination with the desert and the idea of becoming an outlaw, which is where the concept for ‘Monterey’ stemmed from.”
Presently, Borden (keys & vocals) has teamed up with a new line-up consisting of Matt Vickers (guitar), Chris Boon (bass), and Sam Dillon (drums). Borden also says that the band hopes “to start recording new material within the next few months.”
