Alexa Louise's debut single, "Professional," is a refreshing indie-rock ballad that cuts through the monotony of the 9 to 5 grind with raw authenticity and unapologetic honesty. From the first chord to the final crescendo, the song resonates with a sense of angst and rebellion that speaks to anyone who has ever felt stifled by the corporate machine. As the token Gen-Zer navigating the complexities of office life, Alexa's lyrics deftly explore the strange intricacies of working a front desk job, from navigating work crushes to navigating the confines of NDAs and water-cooler conversations. With a sonic landscape that draws inspiration from the indie-rock scenes of East-LA and East-Nashville, "Professional" seamlessly blends muted electric guitars reminiscent of Phoebe Bridgers and Soccer Mommy with blunt lyricism akin to Annie DiRusso and Adrianne Lenker.

In a world where conformity often reigns supreme, Alexa Louise's "Professional" serves as a beacon of defiance and self-discovery. With its infectious energy and thought-provoking lyrics, the song invites listeners on a journey of introspection and empowerment, encouraging them to reclaim their voices and redefine their own definitions of success.
