Houston based alt-rock artist Alex Riddle has just released up-tempo indie rocker, “Snow White,” his new single and follow up to last year’s “Happy Daggers” EP. The track premiered exclusively over on Atwood Magazine, who called it “turbulent, emotionally embroiled, and dynamically engaging.” “Snow White” will be released on a two song 7” single this December.
Riddle had this to say about the track: “It’s something like a modern twist on the fairy tale—and it’s twisted in the strongest sense,” says Riddle. “The perspective is convoluted, and there’s a real lack of resolve on all sides. They definitely don’t live happily ever after in this one…The new singles continue what I started to explore on Happy Daggers—the nature of love and why and how it goes awry.”
“Snow White” is available now on Spotify and Apple Music.
Alex Riddle’s unique approach to songwriting and composition—as well as his prodigious talent as a vocalist and guitarist—have Riddle poised to carve out a spot in the ever-changing indie rock pantheon. While his affinity for exploration and experimentation leads often to stranger territories, Riddle takes great care to make sure that his work maintains its emotional immediacy and directness, which in turn keeps it accessible. Still, his fundamental musical goal is cathartic in nature. “I want the listener to feel that something dramatic is happening, that something is at stake,” said Riddle in an early interview with Houston Press. “I’m not interested in easy listening.”
In the coming months, Riddle will also be hitting the road in support of his new 7” and subsequent digital EP. To stay current on all things Alex Riddle be sure to follow him on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and his official site.
