rlyblonde – the project of Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist Carina Allen – reveals her new single/video, “Your Angel,” out on all streaming platforms today. “Your Angel” is rlyblonde’s first new single since her momentous debut EP, ‘Fantasy,’ released earlier this year.

“Your Angel” is released with an accompanying visualizer that’s in-step with the song’s dark, brooding energy.

After years of being the go-to photographer, videographer and creative director for New York’s favorite indie acts, rlyblonde stepped into the spotlight earlier this year with her debut EP, ‘Fantasy.’ The EP was met with praise by tastemakers like The Luna Collective, Unpublished Magazine, and Enfnts Terribles Magazine.
