Rlyblonde Unveils Dreamy Rock Ballad "Girl in Your Story"

With a captivating music video.


Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist Carina Allen, the creative force behind rlyblonde, has just dropped her latest single and accompanying video, "Girl in Your Story." Serving as the B-side to her high-energy alt-rock anthem, "Your Angel," this dreamy rock ballad marks a departure from rlyblonde's signature sound, revealing a more sincere and tender side to her artistic expression.

Intriguingly, "Girl in Your Story" delves deeper into the themes of identity, femininity, and romance that have been central to rlyblonde's work across various mediums, including music, photography, and videography. The artist shares, "My artwork across various mediums has often played with ideas of female tropes and stereotypes. 'Girl in Your Story' continues that exploration of my own identity, through performance and by embodying these various characters."

The song, while a sonic departure, maintains the emotional resonance that fans have come to expect from rlyblonde. It's a captivating journey into the artist's introspective side, exploring the complexities of romantic yearning and self-discovery. Allen adds, "At the end of the day, behind every scorned woman is just a hopeless romantic. Nothing consumes quite like a crush... and while it was devastating to realize my tendency to fantasize was not limited to men, it was also a very affirming moment in my queer journey to realize I could imagine my life with another woman."



Accompanying the single is a storybook music video that transports viewers into a world of longing and uncertain romance. The video, produced and directed by rlyblonde herself, showcases her storytelling prowess. It portrays a young romantic lead navigating the complexities of love, questioning whether the romance is real or merely a figment of imagination. The visual narrative beautifully complements the heartfelt lyrics of "Girl in Your Story."

What makes this release even more noteworthy is that the music video is a product of rlyblonde's new production company, HOT CREATIVE. Through this venture, Allen not only continues to hone her photography skills but also provides creative direction and production services to fellow musicians in both New York and Los Angeles.

After years of working behind the scenes as the go-to photographer, videographer, and creative director for indie acts in New York, rlyblonde stepped into the spotlight in 2023 with her debut EP, 'Fantasy.' 

In a music scene hungry for authenticity and creativity, rlyblonde emerges as a DIY darling, bringing a fresh perspective to the alternative music landscape. With her unique blend of artistry and a penchant for pushing boundaries, rlyblonde is undoubtedly a rising star to watch, leaving an indelible mark on the intersection of music, visuals, and storytelling.
