Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Alexandria Maillot has been busy crafting the sound of her upcoming full-length album, Time, for the past two years. The album is a follow-up to her debut EP Just Another Girl released in 2012, the same year that she was a Top 20 Finalist in the Peak Performance Project in Vancouver. The recording of Maillot's debut EP was a project spanning several years with the production for the EP taking place during the critical years of adolescence; thus, her new album Time is an apt illustration of her personal evolution - the sonic entity born from undiluted chaos. She wrote the first single 'Sunday Sara' during the budding of a new relationship and the song explores that feeling of being too vulnerable too quickly; being so honest with someone only to feel exposed. But the video (created by: cmyk Productions) takes the song in a somewhat different direction and is a tableau of substance addiction.
"It follows the narrative of a virtuous young girl who has always lived within contained and unmarked, clean walls," explains Maillot. "Within the comfort that surrounds her, an obscured object appears (the conflict), and her naivety leads her down a protracted path that engulfs all that was once familiar. The black lights and neon paint represent the minuscule and often impossible glimpses of hope. An addiction is never finite; there is no algorithm for overcoming a battle once you are completely consumed. All that can be put to bet is the strength of one's remaining character and their determined mind."
Following the release of ‘Sunday Sara’, Alexandria Maillot will be playing select shows throughout British Columbia. With the release of Time on June 10th, Alexandria will be hitting the road to cover more of Canada to share her new sounds and make new friends.

Alexandria Maillot - Time will be available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and all other digital retailers/streaming services on Friday, June 10th.
