Paulina “stranger”


Rising pop singer & songwriter Paulina reveals her new single, “stranger,” from her forthcoming sophomore EP,  ‘everything’s still,’ out later this Summer.

“stranger” is dark and sultry, opening with atmospheric synths before livening into a cathartic release of frustration. _“It’s about the phenomenon of someone close to you becoming a complete stranger,” _Paulina says. “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.”

Paulina is the solo pop project of Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Paulina Ella Levitan. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, her love for music was sparked at a young age. She was classically trained in piano starting at the age of 8 and grew up performing in musical theater productions. After taking a songwriting summer camp in high school, Paulina decided to dive headfirst into making music her full-time career and headed to Miami to study at the University of Miami’s esteemed Frost School of Music.

She launched her solo pop project in 2023 with the release of her single “best friend,” off her debut EP, ‘the show goes on,’ which was produced by her longtime friend and close collaborator Sam Merkin. With her forthcoming sophomore project, ‘everything’s still,’ also produced by Merkin, Paulina continues to introduce the world to her unique, cinematic soundscapes, glistening vocals, and ear-candy melodies.
