Review by: Justyn. W. Brodsky
A little spice, a little sweetness, and multifaceted textures of acoustic guitar swells and vocal auras is what creates a soothing signature sound for the upcoming indie starlet Alexia Madrid an absolute gem in today’s musical realm. The Toronto-based artist (who also attends college in Calgary) is currently in her first active year in her solo career, and her debut single “For Me” is direct indication that she has hit the ground running and has no plans on stopping.
This talented, young artist has a soothing voice that not only projects unwavering musicianship, but her passionate vibes as well. Her well-placed melodies are effective but are also projected at the right moments throughout the song’s duration; giving us a glimpse into many different angles of Alexia‘s artistic merit that range from Pop, R&B to Soul. She’s not just another random girl that decided to wake up one day and become an artist, but instead, discovered a part of herself that was always there; a versatile songwriter and performer coming out of her own shell. And “For Me” is a song that demonstrates this part of her completely, she has debuted her craft diligently and really shines bright throughout this track and shows the world around her that she has what it takes to fit right in with the brighter circle of stars and winners that come from the likes of places like The Voice, American Idol, and those alike.
The production value of this song is elegantly put together and has glistening dueling guitar parts EDM touches, digital drums and other post production theatrics that fit this song with insatiable attentiveness to detail. And that’s one of the strongpoints to this track – it has enough detail to keep you interested, but still leaves enough room to showcase Alexia‘s impressive vocal range and melody choices, which gives this track a perfect introduction into Alexia‘s career and overall sound. Once you take a listen to this song, you’ll build enough up anticipation to hear what she has coming out next.
“For Me” officially drops April 24th, 2020, this Friday.
