the liverpudlian singer’s Third album abounds with inquisitive creativity, expanding his sound into beat-ier electronic territory that never fails to engage.

For this album Alex locked himself away in the studio with producer/multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Czerwik. In their downtime, they discussed artists they loved and would inform the new album - Can, The Flaming Lips, Beck, Prince, Steely Dan, Bon Iver, Serge Gainsbourg, Here We Go Magic, The Beach Boys, Bowie, Neu and tons more... Witness "Benny Is A Heartbreaker", reminiscent of Hot Chip & Talking Heads with its electro beats and slick grooves and "Love Is Enough", referencing David Ackles & Luis Bunuel but sounding like something cooked up by Luke Temple and ELO. "Opaque, mysterious, great string arrangements with harmonic surprises galore and a restless driving bass line.." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music.
