Texas-based singer/songwriter, Brigitte Mena, shared her new single “Maniac” On the track, Mena shares, “It is based on the Netflix show Maniac that was released last September, and is inspired by Emma Stone’s character, Annie Landsberg (suffering from Borderline PD) who takes a series of pills in a pharmaceutical trial that is supposed to ‘cure’ her struggles/disorder. There are many references to ‘machines’ including various sound effects throughout the song as a way of recreating her experience with the trials.”
Brigitte Mena was born to be a storyteller, and her vehicle is music. The singer-songwriter’s heartrending tunes tell harrowing tales enveloped in atmospheric, ambient melodies. But the artist has her sights set on much more than producing pop-rock tracks. Armed with her versatile voice, a pen and a penchant for crafting compelling songs, Mena strives to strike a chord with audiences and tell relevant, resonant stories.
Mena started crafting original music in high school and founded her first rock band as a freshman at Southern Methodist University, where she studied Music and Psychology. Mena’s music studies helped her hone her craft, while her work in psychology gave her an avenue to explore her interest in human behavior. Instead of choosing one passion over the other, the artist decided to merge the two roads ahead of her. By using her talents as a musician, Mena shines a light on topics like behavior, mental health, relationships and identity.
