Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Alex Starling. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I was intrigued by his voice.
The thing that struck me from the first seconds is the voice of this artist.
A voice that in some moments made me think of a female, but then listening carefully you feel instead that it is a man singing and you appreciate all its nuances.
This artist offers us a very melodic and dreamy music.
Nostalgic and crepuscular melodies that speak directly to the heart and soul. A very refined and wisely designed music that excites from the first to the last second.
The production is excellent and every sound element finds the right space in the mix.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Tunnelling For Villains is Alex Starling’s Single Out Now!
Magic and Dreamy!
This is Alex Starling second single mixed by Eduardo De La Paz (Arcade Fire, The National) is a departure from the synth-led sounds of his previous work.
Tunnelling For Villains is a melancholic ballad told from the point of view of a couple watching visitors enter the gates of Pentonville prison. The song was written in The Breakout a cafe opposite Pentonville in north London, a popular amongst locals and prison visitors. It features cinematic synths, and a distinctively organic, analogue feel, culminating in a choir led outro and big guitar soundscapes.
