It almost seemed like the wait for a new project from singer/songwriter Alex Isley was taking a painfully slow eternity (what can we say, we get impatient when it comes to good music). But, as the old adage goes, good things come to those who wait. In the case of Ms. Isley, great things came with the recent release of her third album L U X U R Y. The project, which she dropped this past Saturday, finds the young artist showcasing her musical growth over 10 tracks, two of which she gives fans a chance to preview before purchasing the album in full.
One of the songs, “La Brea,” we heard at the top of the year. With its warm, inspirational vibes and Alex’s swoon-worthy vocal, it was an instant add to our playlists. However, we’re also falling in love with new track “Inevitable.” Over soft synth tones and finger snaps, Alex lays out her heart as she lets a potential beau know that theirs is an unavoidable love affair. Her dreamy vocal couples with the production seamlessly, reminding us of the dulcet love songs of Alex’s friends KING, but with a sound and style that’s all Alex’s own.
