Two years ago, in New York City, producer Malcolm Hamilton spotted ALEXANDER at an ice cream parlour and put it to him, on the spot. that they ought to make a record together….the rest is becoming history.
Part Evelyn Waugh novel, part silver screen star, Alexander is the velvet voice of a new epoch in pop music. Embracing the dry wit of Morrissey, the soundscape of Moroder, and the sensibilities of Manet, Alexander was born for the spotlight. With his melodramatic lyrics and insistent melodies, he has created what he calls a set of “morose disco soul” songs, in the form of the “Dandylioness” E.P.
Recorded between New York, Berlin, London and Dublin, the songs capture the flavour of a certain international demi-monde; the glamour, the tears, the raucous parties and the untimely deaths. Compared to everyone from Bowie to Dietrich, Alexander has nevertheless created out a unique sound for himself, at once nostalgic and contemporary.
Cinematic, lush, wry, Alexander has consistently wowed his audience with a live show that is energetic, dark and always compulsively danceable. Backed by his beautiful dancers, the Crystal Tits, Alexander has played throughout Europe in some of the most chic hot spots, roaring nightclubs, and all the dens of iniquity along the way. But that was just breakfast; now he is ready for the rest of the world.
