(SANDY) ALEX G
A name change, a collaboration with Frank Ocean under his belt and a constant stream of album releases since 2010; you'd be right for thinking that Sandy (Alex G) is a star.
Gaining his fanbase through the streams of Bandcamp his initial single Sandy, was unadulterated acoustic pop intertwined with lo-fi affections, that swirled into a mellow haze of noise. Yet it was his sixth LP DSU, which pulled the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist into plain view. It appeared on a number of Best Album lists in 2014 which included Noisey, Consequence of Sound, Vogue, and Time Out.
From bedroom artist to stage, the evolution of Sandy (Alex G) has seen him get signed to Domino Records, who he released his killer LP Rocket through last year. An exploration of heavier instrumentals and completely fluid soundscapes. The body skips from disturbed blues and bleak shoegaze to hazy folk rock. It's bold and a sign that he isn't slowing down for anyone.
