Alex Lahey hocked her beloved 1999 blue Corolla to pay for the recording of her debut E P. First single out of the boot was last year’s Air Mail, introducing the airwaves to the Melbourne-based rock artist knack for melodic, guitar-driven hooks.
Most recently Lahey has set the music industry abuzz with the insanely catchy You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me. From the attention-grabbing opening bars (those drums sound like an angry landlord thumping your front door on a Sunday morning), it flips the classic break-up line “it’s not you, it’s me” on its head. Upon release in March, YDTYLPLM was immediately added to rotation on triple j, started popping up on music blogs everywhere. It was then Pitchfork gave it Best New Track and got the rest of the world talking.
Lahey live show has set the Australia media and fans buzzing. And 2017 will see her take that show internationally with UK and European Tour as well as showcasing at SXSW and a US tour. Couple that with her debut album bring on 2017.
