Alexander Wesley has become one of my favourite new artists from Canada, thanks to his unique songwriting approach that feels charming and relatable, all the while maintaining a sense of uniqueness that is ever so refreshing to experience.
With it’s gorgeous fusion of laidback pop and RnB, ‘FIVE/SEVEN’ stems from those moments before a relationship begins, where you’re everything to that person other than having the title of ‘boyfriend’ or ‘girlfriend.’
Ontario’s finest, Alexander Wesley is back today with a gorgeously intimate and nostalgic release. ’19’ focuses on those first love feelings we’ve all experienced, perfectly encapsulating everything that a teenage love story has to offer.
“’19’ was written about that unconditional, euphoric and at times amusing state of being young and in love. It’s the kind of love that makes you forget everything else exists. When I sat down to write it, I remember reflecting on what it was like to be at that stage in my life; how innocent and pure every aspect of it was. It’s something for me, that’s hard to forget, and I hope those who listen will be taken back to those very moments that inspired the song.”
A beautifully delicate and melancholic pop release from Canadian talent Alexander Wesley. The track moves through a battle with one’s self as Wesley comes to realise that all of his doubts and worries are a result of his own doing.
“This song was written at a time in my life where I felt like I was questioning every step I made. When we first sat down to write it, I was talking about a romantic relationship and how I was overthinking everything about it. Over time, the song took on a double meaning and started to become about the relationship with myself as well.”
