"Swimming pools is about being happy with what you have and showing a middle finger to the expectations of society, and a world that runs on money," Lxandra reveals. "It's about remembering who you are and where you come from and always holding onto that."
Lxandra – who considers herself "a storyteller as well as a singer and artist" – hails from the tiny Finnish fortress island of Suomenlinna but relocated to Berlin a few years ago. Her debut single 'Flicker' was released in early 2017 and was followed by 'Hush Hush Baby', a song originally written as a birthday present for her mother. Last year she was asked by Amazon to record a version of 'Pride (In The Name of Love)' by U2 for the third season trailer of 'Man in The High Castle'.
"The EP is about coming of age and realizing things," Lxandra laughs. "Every song is about a lesson learned." Along with a handful of brand new tracks the collection will also contain previous singles Dig Deep, and the aforementioned 'Flicker'. It's the perfect introduction to the rapidly ascending young artist, whose unique mix of folk and pop – not to mention her incredible voice – marks her out as one of the key artists to watch this year.
