So Alex Winston is geat! And her tracks have been onTV adverts and everything! People should be all over her by now? They flock to see pop acts, singing over a backing tape, and here she is in XOYO, backed by seven other musicians – including two backing singers – pouring her heart out.there’s like, what, 90 people here? What the fuck!
It’s a big, full, life affirming sound, and her music veers between pop-y, soul-y and yet remains cool and ‘indie’ and wouldn’t get farted outta the top 40. Did I mention she’s super sexy, writes all her own songs and has even supported Chuck Berry and Ted Nugent on tour? And people still go out and buy Jessie J albums? Purr-lease. Can we grow up a bit? No wonder she looks a little disheartened at times on stage.
Alex’s debut album ‘King Con’ can out last month, here is the video for ‘Fire Ant’ an intriguingly creepy stop-motion animation by Alyssa Baron-Klash. Check out the interview we did with Alex last month here.
