Alex Alex is dark, devastating and euphoric music from the imagination of British songwriter and filmmaker Todd MacDonald.
On his debut single ‘Something Else’, Alex Alex captures in visceral detail how we feel in the aftermath of a breakup, cutting loose from another - and the emotional rollercoaster that follows as we seek to forget the past, escape the present and define the future. Recorded between the world-famous Abbey Road Studios and No. 1 Baltic Place (HÆLOS, Florence & The Machine, James Bay), ‘Something Else’ is widescreen and anthemic emotional pop. With Alex Alex, Todd connects his taste for hooks and timeless choruses - the result of a youth spent revering emo giants like Jimmy Eat World - to the glacial ambient textures of industrial minimalists like Ry X and Sohn, brought to life with his spellbinding vocal that recalls 70's folk heroes John Martyn and Nick Drake at their most wistful and haunting. The effect is exciting, unexpected and decidedly modern.
