REVIEW: Erika K - Melva out on Always Alive

Bringing yet another new name to Always Alive Recordings, Erika K makes her deserved debut with the exceptional 'Melva'.

Hailing from San Francisco, Erika K delivers a welcome ray of West Coast sunshine to Always Alive in 'Melva'. Both smoothly effervescent and rousing, 'Melva' delivers a typically accomplished, uplifting anthemic journey, from one of the scene's fastest rising names.

We're stoked to finally bring Erika onto the label with the brilliant 'Melva'.
