News: 51st Avenue Release New Track “Mind Your Own”

Taking aim at those who doubted her return to songwriting & performing post-pregnancy, 51st Avenue’s Alynnis Zizza is empowered, fierce & forthright in their new single ‘Mind Your Own’. Pulling sonic inspirations from artists such as Bring Me The Horizon, alongside the score of hit series Stranger Things, the Sydney trio are continuing to expand on their proclaimed ‘hyper-modern pop rock’ sound with ‘Mind Your Own’. Thick guitars & syncopated drums back Alynnis Zizza’s impassioned, soaring vocals throughout, with the track culminating in a colossal bridge with guitar leads atop a half-time final chorus.


Using technology to their advantage, 51st Avenue constructed the initial beat & synths for ‘Mind Your Own’ using a phone app. After scoping out the fledgling pieces of the track here, the rest of the song came together quickly, with the band combining with a sole direction for the track. Recording out of Keywork Audio in Sydney with Mark Williamson (Inertia, After Touch, Broken Earth), the band then sent the track across to legendary producer Kris Crummett (Dance Gavin Dance, Sleeping With Sirens, Real Friends) for the finishing touches & mastering.

“We knew straight away what we were going for musically when we wrote this track. We wanted to blend the styles of Bring Me The Horizon with the eerie vibes of the Stranger Things score. The lyrics came quickly as our vocalist, Alynnis, was very early in her pregnancy so it was at the forefront of her mind giving the track the lyrical message it has.” 51st Avenue

It started as a beat and some synths made on a phone app. The rest of the track came together pretty quickly, we wanted a specific vibe for the track so we knew what direction we wanted to head in. We’re really happy how it turned out!”51st Avenue

‘Mind Your Own’ is also accompanied by a music video that matches the energy & sentiment that 51st Avenue brings to the track. Filmed in a basement location, the band played with their use of lights, props & space to bring their dynamism to the video. With Oliver Clark from Dunelabs (A Swift Farewell, Heavensgate) at the helm of the shoot, the band felt confident to be truly themselves in front of the camera, with Alynnis also celebrating her pregnancy in the shoot. 

“Working with Oliver Clark of Dunelabs is always a pleasure and a breeze! We had one location and utilized the space and lights and even random furniture to really set the mood. With less of a solid plan, we find we’re able to play around with a lot more. We even shot some impromptu takes of the music video in the car park of the location!” 51st Avenue
51st Avenue have rapidly made a name for themselves across Sydney & the broader Australian alternative music community. With a string of shows sharing stages with Young Lions, The Beautiful Monument, Eat Your Heart Out & NORA, the band have also toured nationally with their debut headline run across Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne & Newcastle late in 2022. triple j’s ‘Short. Fast. Loud’ has been a big supporter of the band, with a First Play on their last single, as well as previous airplay, with tastemakers Wall of Sound, Heavy Magazine & Scenestr also supporting. 200,000+ streams across DSP’s sees 51st Avenue poised to capitalize on their rapidly emerging fanbase in 2023.
