Alex Lahey I Love You Like A Brother Limited Coloured Vinyl LP

Overview:
I Love You Like A Brother is the highly anticipated album from Melbourne's Alex Lahey. After finishing school, Lahey initially went to university to study jazz saxophone, but unimpressed with "learning music in such a regimented way" she switched to an arts degree. While studying, Alex cut her teeth as a member of cult party collective Animaux, which allowed her restlessly rebellious streak to flourish. Alex began to form the blueprint for her own solo material by writing songs inspired by the two people she considers the greatest songwriters of all time, Dolly Parton and Bruce Springsteen, whilst retaining the punk spirit of her first musical outing. These songs found themselves on her first solo EP, the acclaimed B-Grade University. The EP included the single. 'You Don't Think You Like People Like Me'; a mainstay on Australian radio, landing on triple j's prestigious Hottest 100 of 2016. The song's universal tale of rejection took Lahey global - its message, she says, is the flipside of the usual break-up scenario: "Yeah, you're right. It's not me. It IS you". This no-shit-taken attitude forms the backbone of I Love You Like A Brother as evidenced by the uproarious opening track 'Every Day's The Weekend'. Throughout the records' ten songs, Alex's lyrics deftly move between wry, often hilarious witticism to heartbreaking poignancy. For every uplifting anthem, such as 'I Love You Like A Brother' and the unruly 'Perth Traumatic Stress Disorder', there's painfully relatable tracks like 'Backpack' and 'Awkward Exchange'. Despite the instant pop chops of I Love You Like A Brother, there's introspection, self-doubt and sense of working out the complexities of growing up in this limbo period between youth and adulthood.
