Alexandra – Criminal

New South Wales, Australia native, singer-songwriter Alexandra has been immersed in the creative world for most of her young life, expressing herself through various art forms like dance, drawing, photography, and writing.  But the abiding passion that drives her is music.

Alexandra’s mission is to filter the timeless quality and appeal of her musical inspirations through her material and translate her personal thoughts and experiences into a universal understanding.  She’s introducing herself to the world with her fresh single Criminal, produced by American award-winning producer Keith Olsen, which shows off her bold and assured voice.  With a love of the rock, pop, and hip-hop genres, Alexandra gleans elements from each and molds them into her own sound.

Distorted alternative rock guitar riffs, sharply shaken percussion, and dynamically rhythmic hand drums churn throughout Criminal, while Alexandra rapidly runs through a dramatic monologue, sing-rapping urgently about herself and her man and how “They’ll put us in handcuffs” and “…lock you up / …throw away the key.”  The sonic tempo mirrors Alexandra’s vivid vocal delivery, pressing forward amid the desperate circumstances of the subject matter.  Alexandra brings a fierce edge to her choppy vocal intonation, even when admitting with tough bravado that “No matter what you do / you’re not coming home to me.”
