EDITORS’ NOTES

We’ve been anticipating I Love You Like a Brother since the Melbourne singer/songwriter’s 2016 B-Grade University EP. Her style of rumbling indie pop, combined with clever turns of phrase and glass-half-empty outlook, is irresistible and addictive. The opening trio kicks like a mule: “Every Day’s the Weekend,” “I Love You Like a Brother,” and “Perth Traumatic Stress Disorder” are clattering and cleansing indie perfection. Lahey expands her sound palette on “Let’s Call It a Day” and “Awkward Exchange,” but retains the catchy “woah-ohs” and lines like, “Who knew this turnaround would be so quick/But I figured it out/You’re just a bit of a dick.”

Great artist

Redpanther897,

Listened to her on AltNation, great singer

Thank you FB

J Stewa,

There was a sponsored post on my Timeline of her video for "Every Day's a Weekend" Took a listen and really liked it. Spent the next morning listening to everything she had on iTunes and bought everything. Very fresh sounding and like the indie-pop thing. Feels a lot like if Blink 182 decided to have female sequal to "Take off you Pant and Jacket"

House_Love,

Thanks to Majestic Casual I started listening to Alex, and I'm glad she has put out new music! The album is awesome!

About Alex Lahey

An Australian singer/songwriter with a sardonic streak and a flair for crafting melodically charged and relatable pop-punk anti-anthems, Melbourne-based Alex Lahey cites a wide array of artists as influences, including the Killers, Paramore, Dolly Parton, and Bruce Springsteen. Her 2016 debut EP, B-Grade University, caught the ears of Aussie radio giant Triple J and Tegan and Sara, the latter of whom brought her on tour with them. The following year saw Lahey ink a deal with Dead Oceans and release her first full-length outing, I Love You Like a Brother. ~ James Christopher Monger
