'Alien' – a new pop tune from Allan Rose

Working in the much maligned genre of pop, Allan Rose is a singer-songwriter who’s clearly happy with his choice of style. Following some good reaction to his previous pure pop creations, he’s continuing to work in the same vein with new single ‘Alien’ – though this does represent a step forward in his work.
Far less of a ‘cheesy’ pop track than its predecessors, this seems all the more serious in tone without losing the energy that good pop music needs. It’s difficult to create something new in a genre which is by definition the most well trodden ground in the industry, but with the orchestration (or lack of) in the verses giving the choruses space to grow without having to go too big, Rose has found a tender balance on this particular track.
