ALEX CAMERON

Today, Alex Cameron returns with the new single “Sara Jo,” and an accompanying video directed by Cameron and filmed in Croatia. As Cameron’s first new music since 2019’s Miami Memory, “Sara Jo” introduces a new thematic arc to the world of Alex Cameron, contextualizing a character disillusioned with their life. Over a bed of groovy guitars and a driving beat, he paints a portrait of a man whose family is ailed by the ills of modernity, from vaccine denial to exasperation and loneliness (Who pulled the curtains? // Who broke the screen? // Who told my brother that his kids are gonna die from this vaccine? // Who told my mother that she's never gonna find no love, nobody? // Who told my father that he doesn't have to pay for counselling?). Self-produced and recorded by Cameron, co-written with longtime band member Justin Nijssen, and mixed by Mount Kimbie’s Kai Campos, “Sara Jo” stays true to Cameron’s distinctive brand of synth-rock while setting the stage for a wider narrative to unfold.

ROSIE ALENA

Rosie Alena is a singer-songwriter from London. Taking influence from Joni Mitchell and Angel Olsen to Tori Amos, Sufjan Stevens and Esperanza Spalding, Rosie played her first gig when she was just 14 at the 12 Bar Club in Soho and has been enchanting audiences with her eclectic compositions and goosebump-inducing vocal capabilities ever since. After producer Oli Barton-Wood (Porridge Radio, Nilufer Yanya) spotted her at a show in Peckham, they decamped to his studio earlier this year for some fruitful recording sessions. Blessed with a wealth of highly-skilled musicians as friends including black midi, Olivia Dean and Blossom Caldarone, Rosie’s rotating but consistently excellent backing band have gigged relentlessly when allowed, winning her fans across the capital and beyond. Making themselves at home across South London hotspots including the Windmill, Brixton and Deptford’s Sister Midnight, the band also made their Europe debut this summer at Left of the Dial festival in Rotterdam.
