Melbourne singer Alex Watts embraces ‘90s
guitar pop in new single ‘Cool Change’ and
releases lyric video created by Lucy McCallum
Abstract imagery collides with big pop hooks and a classic sense of melody on the Alex Watts’ new single, ‘Cool Change’. The song is the second track to be taken from the Melbourne singer’s forthcoming debut album, following the release of ‘Hopeful’ and its eye catching video back in April.
Taking an entirely different approach than the soul strut of the previous single, ‘Cool Change’ showcases Watts’ eclectic tastes by embracing ‘90s guitar pop. The lyrics convey a sense of unease about the shifting borders of a relationship and will form part of a song cycle on the album.
The song has been given a lyric video created by Lucy McCallum of Third Ray Productions and features the artwork of Ben Montero.
Recorded at Melbourne’s Soundpark studio and mixed by Jez Giddings at Hothouse Audio, ‘Cool Change’ features a plethora of local homegrown talent including Mark Gregory, Eliza Lam (Dr. Doctor/Oh Mercy), Michael Hubbard (Spencer P. Jones and the Escape Committee), Steven Clifford (The Hello Morning), Joe Cope (Dan Kelly Dream Band), Seri Vida and Jemma King (Wise Child).
