Winds of Plague Keyboardist Unveils ‘Popstep’ Single
Winds of Plague keyboardist Alana Potocnik has just released the new electronic track ‘Demons’ as the first part of her apparent solo journey. The poppy dance song is a far departure from her work in the deathcore band Winds of Plague, which she joined in 2009.
After the 2009 departure of Winds of Plague keyboardist and Revolver’s ‘Hottest Chicks in Metal’ regular Kristen Randall, the band was left to search for a replacement. Having received massive exposure from Randall’s risque modeling career, including a spread in the Oct. 2009 issue of Hustler, Winds of Plague set their sights on a new female keyboardist. After a short run with ex-Kittie live guitarist Lisa Marx, the band recruited Potocnik, who has been with them ever since.
Still active in Winds of Plague, Potocnik has begun creating music for a separate solo career under the name ‘Alana,’ which she describes as dubpop and popstep. Potocnik plays piano and sings on her newest recording, ‘Demons.’ The track is a mixture of house music and Skrillex-like dustup – sounding more like a song you’d hear in a club rather than a circle pit.
