Although Canadian singer-songwriter Alex Frew only made his debut earlier this year, he has already established himself as a chilled pop prodigy. His latest release ‘Antisocial Love Song’ shares the same authentic lyricism as his first single ‘Get Out Alive’, and is complemented by a coming-of-age style music video. The reflective shots of Alex diving in the ocean at sunset and his love interest (sung by A Is For Arrows) in a swimming pool really captures the sense of longing for both space and companionship that ‘Antisocial Love Song’ conveys.
Speaking of his new release, Alex says: “It wears its pop music qualities on its sleeve, but it touches on the difficulty of being alone and finding connections with others – a feeling which has only been amplified by the world’s current situation.”
Producing such a polished sound and visual aesthetic, it’s hard to believe that Alex Frew is just 18 years old. Signed by Warner Music Canada, the future looks promising for Alex’s heart-on-sleeve lyricism and mellow pop jams. Since his debut, Alex has received glowing reviews and accumulated a loyal following, and we can expect that this will continue to blossom.
