Multigenrist Alex Paclin releases his latest album ‘What Time Makes Us’. An Alt-Pop 8-track album that showcases Alex’s ability to blend genres and influences to create a well-rounded album that interweaves elements of Pop-Rock, Alt-Pop, Electronic and Russian Folk music throughout.
Created over a 12-year period in Alex Paclin’s home studio, ‘What Time Makes Us’ is a curated coming together of tracks that reflect Alex’s personal experiences throughout the years. As Alex explains it “The album name comes from the idea that time makes us different, all the suffering or/and the good experience leaves an imprint on us and it is expressed in the things we do, in my case the music that I create.”
The lead single of the album ‘Why Was It Me’ echoes this sentiment, focusing on self-reflection and looking for a radical change. An intimate acoustic guitar-led Pop-Rock track that blends electronic swells, uplifting guitar solos and Alex Paclin’s impassioned vocal performance to create a unique soundscape that reflects the hopeful nature of the track.
Other tracks on the eclectic album include the Russian Fok, electronic ‘intro’ track, the sweet ballad of ‘Tomorrow’ and the laid-back Jazz-influenced closure of ‘Hey Justine’.
Born in Russia and California College of Music alumni, Alex Paclin is a talented songwriter, vocalist, producer, harmonica & guitar player.
