Encompassing the carefree feelings of young love in his beautiful new track ‘9 Feet Tall’, Alex Frew is brimming with sincerity and soul.
Blending syncopated synths and soaring melodies, Alex’s striking vocals add an emotional depth to the song that makes the listener feel truly connected to his words. Taken from his debut EP ‘Cobalt’, it is a burst of youthful energy that transcends through each of the six tracks, as he tackles topics such as heartache, self-growth and discovering how to maneuver adulthood. The music video details the Toronto singer-songwriter and a lover frolicking in greenery, a bittersweet aura exuding from the idea that the simplest of days can bring such joy to a life, an aspect that is reflected throughout his lyricism. Speaking on the release of his highly anticipated EP, Alex quotes “I want people to feel a little bit bigger than themselves while listening to the project. I’ve always gravitated towards songs that made me feel boundless, and I sincerely hope that this collection can convey those emotions.”.
Slowly becoming a global sensation, Alex has cultivated a fanbase that hangs onto his every note. After his previous tracks, such as ‘Antisocial Love Song’ and ‘Get Out Alive’, both racked up over 300,000 streams each on Spotify alone, he has featured on the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Mahogany Sessions labelled as one of pop’s best newcomers.
One to watch this year, Alex Frew’s emotional candour is a breath of fresh air for the pop industry.
