Equal parts vulnerable and tongue and cheek, there’s honesty in Amy Allen’s songwriting that is missing in today’s Top 40. Brooklyn-dwelling artist is gearing up to release her full-length album Get Me Outta Here! full of “pop gold” tunes you can rock out to. Compared to Allen’s previous releases, Get Me Outta Here! is more rock-centric and slightly darker – both lyrically and sonically – with the same sentimental and contemplative undertones, but larger and louder. The record is best described as thought-provoking pop with a classic-rock backbone. Each song nods to the notion of being emotionally trapped in a situation or mindset of your own fault, and dealing with the fact that you’re the only one who can get yourself out. On naming the new album, Allen says “I chose to name the album Get Me Outta Here! because that feeling of restlessness mixed with anxiety and frustration is a sentiment that threads its way through the entire record. I also love that it sounds like a classic movie title, a la “Can’t Buy Me Love” or “That Thing You Do!” Introspective, handcrafted lyrics tackle the big, pondering ideas of 20-somethings and their angst, and break them down into tangible, relatable emotions. A true 90s child, Allen’s vocal delivery feels like a conversation between ex-lovers, navigating the waters of complex and often conflicting emotions. The music is brooding yet unquestionably pop, perfectly marrying sun and sadness and nodding to some of Allen’s earliest (and diverse) influencers like Everclear, The Ronettes, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The Smiths, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cardigans, and the Pretenders, among others.
