Alex Winston-Locomotive (Beach Fossils remix)
My brain is utterly frazzled. Subjunctives, passives and modal particles have consumed every hour of every day for an insubordinate amount of time and now with its appetite unsatisfied its started gnawing away at my appreciation for music. Introducing the heroin of the hour Alex Winston. Her voice is easily compared to Kate Bush but Winston is even more extra terrestrial, delicate and strangely cute. The song bounces along with a sort of epic melancholy which Arcade Fire have mastered but this song is less heaving juggernaut and more stone skimming along the water. Catchy hooks, harmonies and a memorable chorus, the perfect recipe for pop music…the beach fossils remix is fairly delicious too.
