ASHS is the alias of award-winning, multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Alyssa Reid from Ontario, Canada. Not too long ago, she released a suspenseful music video for her “Don’t Call Me” single.
ASHS – “Don’t Call Me” music video
“Think I’d learn my lesson the first time you told your first lie, sitting in the parking lot in your car getting high. When she texted you a message, said she had a good time. Your friends all knew and they all ain’t said a word. They just went on with their business, like I ain’t even hurt. Lying to my face, but I guess their fingers were crossed. Now I’m crying while I throw all of your sh*t in a box.” – lyrics
‘Don’t Call Me’ tells a heartfelt tale of an emotionally scarred young woman who experienced a painful breakup with her significant other. Apparently, her companion left her for another woman, only to realize that he has made a tragic mistake. Therefore, he crawls back for a second chance, admits his guilt, and apologizes. But his ex doesn’t want him back. Also, she doesn’t want him to call, text, or show up at her front door ever again.
‘Don’t Call Me’ finds ASHS delivering an unforgiving anthem to exes looking for a second chance. The song is a message of empowerment to anyone that’s been haunted by a past relationship. The accompanying music video is inspired by classic ‘80s and ‘90s horror films like “Scream”, “Freddy Krueger”, and “When A Stranger Calls”. Also, the video sends a straightforward message with a hint of gore and suspense.
“Writing ‘Don’t Call Me’ was a therapeutic experience. It was me being confident enough in my growth to say, ‘if you change your mind, keep it to yourself.’ I wanted to make the video as bold as the statement. I thought of the most extreme phone call I would never want to get, and ran with that, allowing myself to be a teeny bit vengeful. Okay, maybe more than a teeny bit.” – ASHS
Pulling back the curtain, Alyssa Reid reveals her identity and artistic versatility. ASHS was created as an exploration into a new sonic territory. Over the past few years, the 26-year-old artist has become the go-to songwriter for artists like bülow (“Not a Love Song”) and Virginia To Vegas (“Selfish”).
