EQ Discovery: Alex. & Me

Alex & Me

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 vocal allure.

Simply glorious!  encore soon please, more… more!
