Stellar music is hard to come by, so whenever I receive songs that completely blow me away, I’m endlessly grateful to say the least. Today, it’s only right that I share with the readers what was shared with me and why I think it’s so spectacular. If you’re looking for your latest indulgence, look no further.
An artist named Alex Banin is making an appearance on Lyrical Lemonade today for the release of her brand new song titled, “About April”. The 22-year-old London born artist, grew up in New York, but now is based in Chicago, where she started making music. The new piece that dropped last week has been preforming well on streaming platforms and its only a matter of time before it catches fire and is heard by everyone. The subtle production was truly what caught my ear at first listen. It is strong but doesn’t overpower Alex’s beautiful voice which you truly won’t want to miss out on. The best artists are those who can tell stories just as well as they can sing, and that perfectly encapsulates Alex in totality. In this peaceful and reflective piece, the up and comer takes us on an introspective journey through her mind; connecting us with her emotions, feelings and perspectives through amazing lyrical content.
The song is great, but you’ll like it even more when you check out the music video that just dropped this evening. “About April” is truly a triumph and the visual screams just that. Directed, shot and edited by Michael Del Rosario, the meticulously crafted production is too good to just be watched once. From the camera angles to the close up shots, there are not enough good words to say about it. The 3 minute and 9 second piece might just be one the most breathtaking music videos I’ve seen in a while. You can tell that everyone associated with the shoot appreciates art and did everything they could to deliver it in it’s purest form. I could go on and on about Alex and this song, but you’ll jus have to check it out for yourself.
