If there’s any Electronica artist we’re happy to see a new release from, it’s Bergen, Norway-based artist and producer Ben Alexander.
There was definitely no forgetting them after hearing their single Seek which was full of soulfully stylistic ambient euphoria. With their most recent release Sons, the tones may slightly be harsher, colder, and it may be fleetingly comparable to the likes of Covenant, the Editors and John Grant, yet, Ben Alexander has allowed the soundscape to retain the same magnetic mesmerism.
Their electronically-crafted single is an entrancingly adrenalizing infusion of Pop, downtempo Hip Hop, and Gospel, and it’s safe to say, you’ve never immersed yourselves in a soundscape quite like Sons before.
You can check out Sons which was released on May 29th along with Ben Alexander’s earlier releases via Spotify.
