Eighteen-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter Alex Frew is a swirling mix of emotions, yet unafraid to express the state of his mind. His sound speaks teenage angst that rings passionately over melancholy tracks, narrating a journey of wanting to be alone but needing to be in love. He may have “a lump in his throat” but one thing that is clear is his unique way with words when it comes to music. Alex Frew looks to Bon Iver, Interpol, Khalid and The 1975 as musical inspirations.
“The song itself is astonishingly well-produced, making the most of Frew’s clean pop vocal against a backdrop of looped vocal samples, dropped-out bass and intricate electronic beats. It’s familiar, yet fresh, and we can already envision great things in the future for this promising young singer and songwriter.” – Purple Melon
“Despite his young age, his songwriting and delivery oozes great maturity. “Get Out Alive” is a candid and vulnerable account of a distressful love experience.” – Aipate
