|Known for his genre-hopping music, Your Man Alex Smith announces the much-anticipated release of his first full album ‘Slow Burn’. In Slow Burn emotion drives the genre, creating a textured album that draws from musical theatre and cinematic traditions. By linking country, synth, pop, folk and other genres together with a single narrative Your Man Alex Smith has created an album that appeals to diverse audiences, but also rewards people who invest in the complete journey.
‘Slow Burn’ is raw and vulnerable, drawing from Alex’s real experiences of being trapped in a toxic relationship. Declarations of true love and feel-good melodies hide a quiet darkness as the relationship slowly reveals itself. Even after the dust settles on the breakup, self-doubt and anxiety continue to colour the lyrics showing the wide-reaching impact of abuse. Despite the heavy nature of the content, a hopeful optimism shines through.
Your Man Alex Smith layers in driving beats and infectious hooks to create songs perfect for blasting on a summer road-trip with the windows down. With a tour on the horizon, Your Man Alex Smith is set to make waves with this impressive debut in the Australian Music Scene!
