Alekxandr – Still | New Music
Following his debut release “s a l t c r y s t a l s” last year, which made quite an impression with the likes of i-D, DIY and Nylon amongst others, London’s captivating new talent Alekxandr unveils his brand new offering “Still“.
Taken from his upcoming debut EP, “Still” appears seamlessly as another hugely atmospheric soundscape – the minimal, soft piano instrumental evoking a sadness similarly found with Lana Del Ray, whereas other references slowly emerge from the swirling mist: the subversive eroticism of Perfume Genius or Serpentwithfeet, the ethereal vocal and orchestral swells creating a world of dreamy, yet muscular songs.
LITTLEKING, the EP to come, is Alekxandr’s emotionally raw account of heartbreak. Love, the journey through addiction, numbness and the anger that leads to eventual acceptance. His songs pairing the honest with the fantastical, pushing beauty and emotional devastation together to create something unsettling and ripe.
