With a voice that channels the ghosts of smoky fifties jazz haunts, lucid and literary lyricism worthy of J.D. Salinger, and wondrous youth-in-revolt abandon, Alexandra Savior will tell you she makes, “Sassy impolite spaghetti western music.”
Today, after much intrigue, fascination and speculation from music fans and press alike, the Portland, OR born, 21-year-old artist has quenched our thirst and revealed her first official song titled “Shades.”
Produced by Arctic Monkey’s front-man Alex Turner and James Ford (Florence and the Machine, Haim, Jessie Ware), “Shades” introduces the world to Alexandra with a shaky tambourine, rustling guitar hum, buzzing synths, and her croon, “I kinda wish that it was New Year’s Day on a vacant street. I cast a long ass shadow when you’re looking for your shade.” “It’s about knowing you’re doing something you’re not supposed to be and reveling in it,” she smiles.
“Shades” received its worldwide premiere exclusively on Zane Lowe’s Beats1radio show on Apple Music and is available worldwide today on all digital platforms.
