Alex Hulme spins the cliché of the solo singer songwriter on its head in his newest release, ‘Back of the Pack’. Confidently setting the tempo, the main vocal and guitar smoothly build up the close vocal harmonies and contrapuntal rhythmic details, establishing the groove then switching it up. But he’s not scared of stripping it back towards the end, avoiding predictability with the folky banjo melody peeking through before the last chorus. Combining the snappiness of Ed Sheeran with the sensitivity of Lucy Rose, Alex Hulme definitely makes a statement.
Alex has the forthcoming gigs on;
Thursday 26th March @ 229, London
Friday 27th March @ Threshold Festival, Liverpool
