Alex G has announced a new album, ‘Beach Music’. Due out on 9th October, it’ll be his first release with Domino. The 22 year old signed with the label earlier this year. He’s also shared the lead track from said album, ‘Bug’.
Typically, ‘Bug’ is a personal, confiding affair, with a helium vocal section for good measure. Speaking to DIY about his writing process earlier this year, Alex G said “a lot of the time it’s just a collage of a lot of different experiences. It’s probably more subconscious than it seems. What’s that thing where a physiologist shows you a picture, and you shout a word without really thinking about it? Sometimes it’s really quick. It’s not like I’m doing this super deep metaphor. I reflect on different things and just let it come out.”
The tracklist is as follows. Top marks for writing a song about ‘Snot’
06. Look Out
07. Brite Boy
08. In Love

13 Berlin, Germany, Berghain, Kantine
14 Haldern, Germany, Haldern Pop Bar
