Opening to subdued vocals layered over glistening synths, the track progresses through verses underpinned by brooding basslines before opening up into driving choruses which blur the lines between infectious pop and genre-evading electronica. ‘Messy’ draws you into an alternative dreamworld; a mix of hypnotic synths and driving beats. Beneath its atmospheric landscape lies a story of intense connection and lost control: storytelling through a dark and dreamy lens.
“Messy is about losing control” Alex explains. “Being connected to something that’s changing and not knowing whether you should be scared of it, or go with it… it’s strange and addictive”.
‘Messy’ follows Alex’s previous releases, ‘Search Party’ and ’24 Fears’, which garnered acclaim from CLASH and BBC Introducing. Taking influence and inspiration from the likes of Kate Bush, Lorde, London Grammar and FKA Twigs, Alex Jayne’s eclectic and unique brand of infectious songwriting is setting the stage for her to become an unstoppable new musical force.
