Here in “Autumn Leaves,” we see a stunningly creative video animated by Joshua Hoang bring life to Alex B at his best. Low fi instrumentals are expertly mixed with Alex’s crooning voice. The sound wraps around the listener and the percussion hits perfectly.
Altogether, the sound creates an intimate experience that makes you feel are right there with Alex; he is someone you can trust and experience life with. Many will be able to relate to the feeling—losing a relationship, seeing the signs of “autumn leaves fallings,” knowing winter/the end of the relationship is coming and you just “wanna go home,” wishing the whole thing could simply be over so you wouldn’t have to go through the painful breakup process. After listening to “Autumn Leaves,” it will be clear to you how Alex B has captured thousands of hearts.
Luckily for all of us, Alex B dropped his debut album Troubled Thoughts this summer! Alex truly stretches himself on this album, dipping his toes in the hip hop/R&B world as well as presenting some straight-pop songs you’ll love dancing to. On the title track “Troubled Thoughts,” we see Alex stay true to his signature low-fi style. Here, Alex does it again. He has the unique ability to pique our interest with his sad tales, and then when the chorus hits—you can physically feel then sensation in your chest. You might feel the need to go give Alex a hug or cry yourself, but you will definitely be tuning in for another listen.
