With his ninth studio album ‘House of Sugar’ set for release on 13th September, (Sandy) Alex G is sharing his latest cut ‘Southern Sky’.
Featuring vocals from Emily Yacina, the jangly track flourishes with big guitar strokes, distorted violin and twinkling piano chords, creating a hopeful vibe that feels like it should be soundtracking a coming-of-age movie.
An intriguing glimpse at what’s to come, the accompanied video was created by frequent collaborator Elliot Bech.
