Alex Lahey is a 24 year old singer songwriter from Melbourne , Australia who has just signed to Dead Oceans Records. who have just re-released her EP and it is an excellent listen. Lahey tackles your traditional 20-something issues including relationships and life choices. Like her fellow Aussie, Courtney Barnett, Lahey has some wonderful lyrics; often at her own expense. For years, we’ve heard that rock ‘n’ roll is dying. Fun fact: It’s not true. Rock ‘n’ roll is alive and well in people like Melbourne, Australia for newcomer Alex Lahey, whose debut full-length I Love You Like a Brother is a bracing blast of big hooks, bigger guitars and biggest fun. Lahey has a tremendous talent for spotting the meaningful moments of day-to-day life, especially relationships, and then cleverly turning them into irresistible anthems. In a year that sometimes felt like drowning in bad news, I Love You Like a Brother is a rock ‘n’ roll lifeline.

She’s going to have some dates in the UK  including a stop Bodega. 20th March 2018, She’s firmly planted on my must-see list.
