Channelling more of that warm and effervescent energy
After making a bold impression with a string of intoxicating cuts over the last few years, which have earned him praise from BBC Radio 2, BBC 6Music, Absolute Radio, and even numerous Artist Of The Week accolades from BBC Introducing, fast-rising singer and songwriter Alexander Hulme has now announced his plans for his new EP ‘Slow Down’, previewed by the stunning lead single ‘Lightning’.
As both the opening track and initial offering from his upcoming collection, ‘Lightning’ perfectly showcases what we can expect from his new release. Channelling more of that warm and effervescent energy that he brings to everything he creates, ‘Lightning’ is a fresh and dynamic effort that perfectly accentuates his bright and breezy direction.
Speaking about the new track, he said, “Lightning is about missing the day to day events that are all around you and encapsulates a walk through Liverpool encountering different characters on the street that are regulars in Liverpool. The woman asking for the big issue, the angry man shouting bible verses at passers by. It’s a song focusing on the small events that surround us that we take for granted and often outright ignore but are fundamental in adding to our experience.”
Written entirely by the artist himself and produced by David Alexander Lomelino, ‘Slow Down’ marks the next vital stage in his growing and fledgling career. Showcasing his breadth for smooth and enticing songwriting, the new four-track EP makes for a embracing and organic listen that will see him capture the hearts of thousands, if not millions.
Throughout the last few years, Alexander Hulme cut his teeth as a songwriter for the likes of Goldzbrough, MABES, Georgie Keller, Ian Janco and many more. His expertise has led to a number of writing and performing sessions for a host of artists, earning millions of streams for his work in the process. In recent years, he has begun to explore his solo work further, regularly finding himself across dozens of radio stations and publications for his own material. He is now pursuing a more humble and DIY approach to writing and recording, regularly keeping his aesthetic as minimal as possible to create a more robust and textured sound than most.
Alexander Hulme’s new EP ‘Slow Down’ will be available to stream and download from the 12th November via Silent Kid, with the lead single ‘Lightning’ out on the 1st September.
