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.”
