LISTEN | Montreal's Alex Rand Teases Debut Solo EP With Dreamy Alt-Pop Tune "Boyhood Places"
This Montrealer is going to give you chills.
Alex Rand has been working on his first solo EP titled Sundial. Also known for being in an art-rock band called LOOK VIBRANT, this multi-talented artist from Montreal does things a bit differently with his solo project: he calls it experimental-pop.
We just discovered this producer/songwriter through his dreamy single "Boyhood Places" who delivers rich samples and vocal harmonies to die for. According to Alex the record is,
"a collection of experimental-pop songs that explore a wide range of lo-fi sonic textures and harmonic colours within the frame of more accessible pop forms and melodies."
Expect some progressive pop where Alex Rand deconstructs elements of popular sub-genres and fuses them meticulously in order to offer an artistic rendition of independent pop with a sprinkle of rock elements. His delicate approach when it comes to vocals seem to fit perfectly on top of his rich-productions that could be dubbed as maximalist.
