Emotions run high: Alexis Perry brings tears to our cheeks and fascinates beyond belief on ‘Murder in Suburbia’

Taken off her brand new EP called ‘American Beauty‘, Alexis Perry pulls tight on your heart strings with the stunningly sad visuals for ‘Murder in Suburbia‘.

Charleston, South Carolina indie-pop singer-songwriter and vocalist extraordinaire Alexis Perry, makes that special music to urge your heart to heart a bit faster, while she grabs hold of it tight- to make sure you are really listening.

With a vibrant voice that you can’t shake off quickly, you get lost inside her creation and smile to yourself as you know you are seeing someone so beautifully unique, in this often fake copycat world.

Inspired by Southern American literature, murder mysteries, and astrology, this is a true creative that isn’t interested in filling any genre at all and instead, makes her own.

This is a music video that will wrap your head in plastic, as you try and work it all out like a Detective, only to realize that you have missed the point. When you come across a magnetically talented woman like this, instead of trying to fit it all into your own box, you need to instead let her run free to let the creation evolve, in order to see what happens next.

Her vocals tell a mysteriously fascinating story as she looks directly at the lifeless body wrapped in plastic- with lyrics about climbing through windows, sneaking into the dark of the night, tearing homes apart while she cries, is an emotionally scaring picture, as her voice shreds through your speakers and your eyes open wide. You feel her pain and keep on listening so close, as you immerse yourself into her story into the garage with the door shut- as you wonder where the story is headed.

In any good mystery story, you don’t get to the end after four minutes and fifty four seconds. This is a supremely talented musician who is slowly letting us in, to show us that she is only getting started and we need to be ready for the next chapter.

Murder in Suburbia‘ from South Carolina’s Alexis Perry is a stunning song and one that is sung so purely by a singer with so much potential, despite her young age. She seems like an old soul that puts her heart and soul into every note. We might be witnessing an emergence of special talent, right before our very eyes.
