New Rocker From Alex Lahey

Alex Lahey, out of Melbourne, is coming up in the scene with some pretty great indie rock that fans of Courtney Barnett will enjoy. The new track she released this morning, “Lotto in Reverse” is a prime example of her sleek yet fuzzed out rock and roll. The guitars are heavy in the mix, grounding the whole thing in a layer of garage sound, while the vocals demand the power of the track, Lahey’s range shining through the choruses. Take a listen, immerse yourself in the lyric video below, and get stoked for her new album,I Love You Like a Brother, which will be out October 6. Pre-order it here.
