Alexander Carson – Lovers

Lovers is Alexander Carson debut (solo) track and is accompanied by an equally contemplating and eerie video.

The piano starts the whole thing on in Alexander Carson Lovers. Soon the accelerated vocals react upon the story they want to tell. In Lovers the piano is always more melodic than anything other, and the vocals sort of represent the storyteller. Sounding at times like an Irish prayer and others a bit Bowie-ish, but never dull or less challenging. And when the piano turns into a harp we already feel connected to this odd-sounding uniquely-melodic chanting.

The song is properly illustrated by very beautiful video (that truly takes the song to another level) where what seems to be a widowed fiance pays her last tribute to his deceased husband before letting herself go to. The stunning and tragic visuals really hook the watcher right in. And as this downtempo song gently incorporates modern vibes with old ambiances, Alexander Carson seems to find himself lyrically after 7 years as lead singer for Wooden Arms. Lovers is officially out tomorrow and is his debut track as a solo artist.
