"Hot Rocks" initially lures us in with its multi-colored percussion found in the intro, although the track really comes to life when Alissa's gorgeous vocals slip into the mix.

The bounce in the drums is quite reminiscent of 90's R&B, and we can definitely hear the influence of that era seeping into "Hot Rocks". Essentially, with her new single, Alissa Cruz has beautifully inserted a sense of nostalgia in her garden-fresh style of R&B.

This, along with her gripping songwriting, is among the many reasons this US-based artist should be on your radar.
