Alex Alexander Bad Luck

As a multi-talented performer, Alex is no stranger to the music scene and covers a variety of genres. “Bad Luck” is a moving production, the only of its kind in this new era of music which often lacks substance and musicality.

We checked in with Alex Alexander to ask him a few questions about his latest music release and more. Check out the exclusive interview below.

When did you decided that you first wanted to pursue music?

When I was 12 I was literally obsessed with Metallica and Yngwie Malmsteen the super guitarist. So there was a very strong urge to start playing guitar and ever since that time I been hooked on music. My music career has taken me on several journeys around the world and eventually into the recording industry.

How would you describe your style for an Alex Alexander newbie?

My main style is Pop but I tend to lean on the harder side with more guitars mixed with Urban Drums. My signature as an artist is definitely my High Vocals  according to my fans.

Can you tell us a little bit about some of your musical influences that have helped to shape your experience as an artist?

My dad has a very broad musical interest so he listens to everything from Genesis to Motown stuff, I love the Motown era and I still think it was one of the best eras for music ever. A lot of my influences also come from Rock music since I love guitar playing and the rough sound. I think as an artist coming from a broad musical background is great since you will have your mind open to all kinds of music.

If you were given the opportunity to collaborate with any artist, musician, or producer, who would that person be?

One man one name: Max Martin

   Using 3 words, describe your latest single “Bad Luck”?

IMG_0111Experimental, Sexy & Real

What were some of the inspirations behind the single?

I wanted to do a single with a flare of Motown but still keep it in the modern Pop Vibe and the end result was ’’Bad Luck’’. I started playing around with some old school guitar sounds and I really feel in love with the chord line of the song and felt like yeah I want to release this to my fans.

Some of the most popular names in music have come out of Sweden, are you also hoping to gain international success and if so what does it take to break boundaries if any?

Sweden is a great music country with an amazing amount of talented people. Im very proud of the impact that Swedish artists have been able to create worldwide and its very inspiring to take a shot at such a big challenge when you see its actually possible. To make it worldwide as an artist you have to build up relationships and travel around to the markets to where you want succeed. Im right now in Los Angeles doing precisely that!

So around about this time last year we covered your track “She’s a Dynamite”, but  “Bad Luck” really seems to deliver a different vibe, what made you decide to change things up?

’’She’s A Dynamite’’ was my first track as a Solo artist. My team and I felt along the way, that its not the vibe of music that I want to aim for long-term. I still like the song very much, and its a cool song on my track record. I want to do Pop- but more mature Pop, like Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5 etc.

I love Prince and I could see my musical choices reflecting a lot of how he was doing songs; you never knew what Prince was gonna deliver, Pop, Rock, Soul, or Ballad? I think this is a very cool way of doing music. It was still Prince in every one of his songs, but a lot of different genres.

If there were one thing that you wish listeners and fans would take away from your music, what would that be?

An emotion! Any kind of emotion ’’I love this’’ ’’This Sucks’’ or whatever, haha, music is about emotions. If you don’t get any response at all, then you failed and made something that is not provoking any kind of anything.

2016 is half way through, are there any other projects that we can expect from you this year?

Oh yes. I spent almost 2 months in Los Angeles [now] and just finished 3 new singles that I am very proud that represent the future sound of Alex Alexander. The music goal is to get a six song EP done before the year ends!

Alex, thank you for taking some time out to answer a couple of questions from the glitter squad, please share any last words or comments that you would like to get out to the masses!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to talk to you guys at Glitter Squad and don’t forget to follow my socials to keep updated with my new projects and music!

Alex Alexander has traveled the world as an Indie artist since the age of 19. The musician, singer, songwriter, and producer released “Bad Luck”, his fourth single in April 2016. Reminescent to Smokey Robinson with a splash of Prince, “Bad Luck is a Pop and R&B track with a 50s flair; the song takes listeners back to the cherished Motown era for a fleeting moment but it’s contemporary energy beckons the millennial generation.

Recognized for his captivating live performances, Alex is praised for his energy and stage presence which have gained him notoriety all over the world. As a cross-over artist, he has received awards for his producing and songwriting projects for some of the biggest names in Asia and Europe. Regarding Alex’s earlier smash hit “She’s A Dynamite”, ScandiPop, Stockholm/London says, “Kelly Clarkson would be proud.”  Guitar Experience UK called Alex Alexander “One of the best young guitarists right now!”

EsZ ‘Away from Me’: Unleashes Lyrical Assault Beast mode on Download EsZ’s New Street Banger Decimates

Erron's Attic

Given the fact that recording artists and songwriters have a way with words, they often use music to express their own experiences.  Many times songs are nothing more than interpretations of stories and whether factual or fiction, the story may be good or bad, depending on your role in helping to create it. Inspiring isn’t it?

Erron's AtticQuickly approaching global stardom, Hip Hop artist EsZ recently released ‘Away from Me’ an edgy track with a slightly venomous rage. The Brooklyn-based talent whose style is reminiscent to artists such as Kendrick Lamar, introduces fans to a different perspective so get prepared to be inspired or embarrassed (boys), take your pick!

If you are familiar with EsZ’s music, you will immediately recognize his artistic prowess within the first couple of bars, but this mix will either leave you stunned into silence or dodging for cover.  We are introduced to yet another facet of this young, multi-dimensional star on the rise. Peeling back yet another layer, EsZ welcomes fans into a darker realm ever so cordially, or not depending on your disposition.

We’ll just keep it one-hundred and get to the nitty. The track kicks down doors like SWAT on a bad day… a really bad day, as EsZ delivers a fury of fast-paced lyrical blows. ‘Away from Me’ is an unabashed production that speaks volumes to those individuals exasperated with common bullshit imposed upon by #haters and jealous #thirst trap victims.

Responding to the unsolicited confrontation offered up by otherwise insecure men it seems, EsZ clears his chest with some serious expletives. Though you’ll have to put some in work to keep up with this quick-witted emcee, his message rings out with remarkable clarity despite a flurry of F*bombs and and searing insults. And if you are just now dialing in to this tea, you’ll definitely want to take notes. We assume if you are reading this blog you appreciate the value substance and that is exactly what EsZ delivers.

‘Away from Me’ is anything but a subtle reminder that EsZ, also known as Erron is all about his shit, with zero plans of taking it from anyone. Despite the fact that pretty girls and their jealous boyfriends, happen to come with the territory (ahh the life of a hip hop star), EsZ who slays on this track, stays the true to the game and dices it up with a smooth set of chops.

Listen to EsZ ‘Away from Me’ now streaming on Soundcloud

If you are already a fan of EsZ, it should come as no surprise that the young artist is leaving an indelible footprint on music not only in his hometown, but pretty much everywhere. Thank you Internet; You are welcome world! If you are just visiting this site and dig the dope track above, head on down to the links below to get familiar with the artist and his music.

erron esz

erron eszEsZ returns to the scene with another reminiscent track titled “MIA NIA”. While the title conjures images of a gorgeous girl from around the way, EsZ makes a subtle play on words as the acronyms stand for Missing In Action, Name Is Anonymous. Leave it to a true visual artist to design even the title of his release in such a way that it not only conveys an embedded message but also leaves listeners guessing. Getting back to the business at hand, “MIA NIA” is smooth mix that you will want to add to your playlist. If in a fleeting moment you find yourself longing for your ex-bae, the one that got away, or maybe the one whose name you just can’t seem to remember, “MIA NIA” will tug on your heartstrings if you so happen to have any left. Heartbreak is a bitch and love sometimes sucks, but this New York artist makes dealing with it just too “EsZ”.

“MIA NIA” delivers a soft, mellow vibe with delicate chords as EsZ spits out some evocative verses. From a first-person perspective, listeners are introduced to a detailed story about a girl who left a lingering impression as he ponders about her future, exploring the ‘what ifs’ and where. Without giving her a name, the girl who is the subject of “MIA NIA” could easily be any guy’s first love, the one his thoughts return to time after time.  Think Love & Basketall… Poetic Justice, and that is the exact same energy that you absorb when listening to this nostalgic number.

EsZ blesses fans with a savvy music production that encapsulates the ingenious use of metaphors and sonic visuals to develop a sophisticated tale. “MIA NIA” is a provoking wave of reality that will surely sweep across the human mind with substance, something that in popular music, has been amiss. EsZ’s work embodies the aesthetic of a free-spirit, soul of an artist, and is the cultivation of today’s millennial.

Listen to EsZ performing “MIA NIA”, now streaming on Soundcloud.

Having been inspired by popular hip hop icons such as Jay-Z, Eminem, and Nas, EsZ has discovered his own unique voice.
