Dalea — no stranger to Love is Pop — ventures into darker terrain with her new single, “Visitor,” which is the title track from her scorching new album. One of the things the album succeeds in is making you feel as though you’re an alien who’s visiting this planet we call earth and just forming a first impression and not exactly liking what you see. On “Visitor,” Dalea predicts that we’re headed for a crash, something that doesn’t seem very far-fetched if you’ve been following the news. The uber-heavy song reaches other-worldly sonic touchstones as it crunches along like Pac Man, devouring everything that gets in its way. Look out!
