Alexa Dark brings an uprising to female empowered alternative rock. Globally influenced through her adolescence spent between Spain, London, and Germany; she now splits her time between New York City and London. Singer/Songwriter, Alexa Dark, brings her guitar skills as well, to the self released EP Empty Drinks/Empty Hearts, due out August 18th.
Empty Drinks/Empty Hearts, is a cohesive story that takes a personal and unabashed look into the hookups and relationships we create in these hazy and passionate moments. Alexa lends sultry and hypnotic vocals to her storytelling and will draw you in lyrically. Tracks like “Nothing More” and “Again and Again” are both catchy and relatable. They take you on a ride between melancholy and angst.
A vivid framework to the EP is the notion that people too, can become our bad habits. “Empty Drinks” is the title track and pre-released single that carries on the theme with a playful acoustic start.
“Our Time” closes out as the final chapter. The track unfolds with a blues edge and makes for a rousing closer. Alexa repeatedly tells her suitor “this is not our time.” However, this certainly could be the time for her 90’s influenced sound and style to come to fruition.
