Available to stream today, ‘Surrender’ is the stunning new single from up-and-coming rock trio Alexis Kings.
The Herts three-piece – comprising of Brendan Aherne (Vocals), Sam Privett (Lead Guitar) and Fabio Bocca (Drums) – write contemporary rock songs with timeless appeal, inspired by artists as diverse as Kings Of Leon and Tom Misch. Alexis Kings’ previous singles have received support from Radio X’s John Kennedy and Huw Stevens on Radio 1, and have seen the band perform on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and BBC London’s Gaby Roslin show. ‘Surrender’ looks set to continue the momentum, an uptempo, feel-good banger, it perfectly encapsulates the powerful sonic chemistry of Alexis Kings.
Comments Brendan: “We wanted to start writing songs that resonated with our electric audiences and live set. This song in particular felt like a good start, the melodies are reminiscent of an old school R&B record and it’s very bass and beat driven. Lyrically, Surrender is a typical subconscious commentary of someone depicting their frustration at ‘late night feelings’ and essentially falling short in their attempt at playing hard to get. We recorded and produced the track by ourselves. We wanted to really distinguish ourselves sonically with the next few singles, and there’s no better way than to take complete control of the process.”
Alexis Kings debut single ‘Squire’ reached the Top 10 in several Spotify streaming charts and playlists, garnering attention from the heart of Australia’s top radio networks to the Los Angeles music scene. The band have surpassed a million streams on Spotify, with listeners in 77 countries, while their excellent videos for ‘Velvet’ and ‘Addict’ are racking up the numbers on YouTube.
The band play Factory251 in Manchester on the 31st January
