Boston-native artist Alex Roma describes his electrifying love story in his new upbeat summery pop-funk single 'Stunned'.
Cohesive, but standing out from the rest of Alex's musical catalogue, 'Stunned' is a less traditional pop song, sonically quite catchy and could be compared to a song born from the fusion of Troye Sivan’s soft vocals laid over a Dua Lipa-esque production. Taking elements from different styles and scenes, a disco influence runs throughout giving a nostalgic 80's feel to the track with subtle funk-infused guitars and a more modern vocal.
The inner-working themes behind 'Stunned' is actually one of the most personal songs Alex has ever written, as the narrative follows a very dear and electrifying moment in his life. More specifically, the song tells the narrative of the very feeling Alex had after his first date with his now girlfriend. Alex described his songwriting process very lovingly, mentioning that writing 'Stunned' was easy and came naturally for him since it was his way of expressing to his girlfriend how electric and incredible she is, and how much she means to him.
Alex says on the track,
"Some people call this feeling 'butterflies', but to me, it felt like electricity. I've always used the lightning bolt emoji in my girlfriend's contact name – because she really did stun me. I hope 'Stunned' makes people think of the first time they met or went out with the person who has changed their life - and knew right away that person is special."
