Sierra Blax is a Los Angeles-based pop meets neo-soul artist whose new album brb…i’m daydreaming features climatic pop aesthetics and groove-infused electronics for an intoxicating and multi-dimensional blend of sonic expression. Blax’s focus track of the album “Distract Me” is a modern anthem for getting over someone by surrounding yourself in a frenzy of multiple distractions.
The musical landscape behind “Distract Me” combines windswept electronics, layered backup vocals, interludes of melodramatic violin, and sound effects of a text being typed out and sent. Blax writes about her personal experience, putting a band-aid on her past relationship and overlaying her heartache with countless distractions. Blax writes, “Pour me another / Don’t wanna be bothered.” While “Distract Me” admits to the heartbreak of letting someone go, it also celebrates the playful, fun-loving era of life which Blax approaches as a single girl. She keeps it light at the end of her intense bridge saying, “He ain’t sh*t though.” Sierra Blax champions her new single as a prime vocalist who plays with depth, rhythm, and harmonics to match her intense layer of dynamic sonics behind the lyrical matter of “Distract Me.”
