The first time of listening to Alexa Van’s debut single “So Angry” for a moment I wondered if Amy Lee changed her name and adopted a Bluesy Rock sound. Yet, as the single progressed it became evident that Alexa Van has one of the most distinctive voices we’ve heard from an up and coming female artist.
The range in her vocals is one thing, the power she uses to dominate the entire soundscape is quite another. Her voice isn’t just one which soulfully resonates, it’s expressively concordant whilst having the power to move tectonic plates. If any of that sounds like an exaggeration. Wait until the raw, celestial power of her angst hits you through her first single. Although the vocals give a lot for the instrumentals to contend with, the melody which they lace into the soundscape adds plenty of weight to the already colossal single.
