I have mentioned quite recently that music by way of
Scotland appears to be garnering pace, from once when Scottish pop prominence
was secured by Ultravox and Deacon Blue, it kind of filtered down on the radar
until Calvin Harris and Susan Boyle brought fame again from the northern UK
shores. In recent months the pop making fuse has been lit again with quality
discoveries that have been brought to our attention in Chvrches and Downtown
Drive and now we have the pleasure of introducing Alex. & Me.
The solo project of a Scottish singer / songwriter, is all
the information we have been given, but really when listening to the online
premiering debut of “Work It Out” which has also been written and co-produced
by the artist known as Alex. & Me, it speaks for itself.
The echoing introductory passage just threw me back to the
glory days of Deacon Blue actually, but once passed that “Work It Out”
progresses into a dreamy synth driven indie popsicle of sensuously luscious
encore soon please, more… more!
