Alex G is best known for being a bedroom pop songwriter penning simple, heartbreaking tracks at an alarmingly fast rate. But there’s more to the Domino-signed musician than non-stop hits.
In a new video for ‘Mud’, he invites fans into his Philadelphia lifestyle. Turns out that consists mostly of eating leaves, traipsing through muddy terrain and hanging out with collaborator Emily Yacina. Dogs also feature - always a bonus.
Alex G kicks off a U.S. tour this week, with Porches and Your Friend.
New album ‘Beach Music’ is a) great and b) out now.
