Paulina Kicks Off Her Forthcoming Sophomore Project With New Single “stranger”

It may be emotional and touchy subject matter, but it’s dark and sultry just to our liking. On our latest peek into the indie world we are checking out “stranger”, the latest drop from Paulina. Paulina is the solo pop project of Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Paulina Ella Levitan. Growing up in Long Island, New York, Paulina developed a love for music at a young age, receiving classical piano training from the age of 8 and performing in musical theater. Her passion for music deepened in high school after attending a songwriting summer camp, leading her to pursue a full-time music career at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, where she honed her skills in music production and composition.

In 2023, Paulina launched her solo pop project with the single “best friend” from her debut EP, ‘the show goes on,’ produced by her longtime friend Sam Merkin. Her music, characterized by emotive lyrics and catchy melodies, blends her classical training with contemporary pop elements. Paulina’s work has been well-received for its authenticity and emotional depth, marking her as a promising new voice in the pop music scene.

“It’s about the phenomenon of someone close to you becoming a complete stranger. It’s haunting, bold, and more angsty than my past songs. It introduces a different side of me, unlocking a new era of music that has been insanely fun to create.”

With her forthcoming sophomore project, ‘everything’s still,’ produced by Merkin, rising pop singer and songwriter Paulina continues to showcase her unique, cinematic soundscapes and glistening vocals. The lead single, “stranger,” introduces a darker, more sultry side of Paulina’s music. Featuring atmospheric synths and a cathartic release of frustration, the track explores the phenomenon of someone close becoming a stranger. Paulina describes it as haunting, bold, and angsty, marking a new, exciting era in her music that reflects her artistic evolution and versatility.
