ALX is a singer/songwriter hailing from Naples, Florida, who is signed to Alamo Records. In the beachside town of Naples, ALX cut his teeth making music with his older brother, Dominic Fike, and other friends including Ben Chandler, ripmattblack, and Capi.
With a resonant voice and a witty songwriting sensibility, ALX is the latest genre-fluid Southwest Florida artist to demand attention. Preparing a vibrant 5-track effort, ALX announces The Fantasy, his debut EP. Splitting the difference between crunchy pop-punk, radio-friendly rap, and silky R&B, ALX’s songs tell breezy relationship stories with a wry sense of humor. Featuring the summer-ready recent single “Misses, FL”, which earned over 150k views on its dreamy music video, The Fantasy EP arrives on May 27th.
To accompany the announcement of the EP, ALX shares “Love On Top”, his new video single, premiered by Ones To Watch. Riding a rocksteady, backbeat-accented beat with spritely piano and spindly guitars, “Love On Top” is a joyful account of the early days of a relationship. Singing the praises of spending quality time with the person he loves, ALX nimbly navigates the instrumental with his gravelly voice and expert sense of conversational rhythm. In the video, directed by Carrington, ALX and his girlfriend spend a sun-drenched afternoon in a rustic cabin, with nobody around to interrupt their romance.
