Howl! offer such honest ideas & even vulnerabilities, as well as reflections on life, love, and everything in between – all while continuously impressing musically & vocally.

This isn’t purely about the singer, or the songwriter, or the musicians at work – this is about the artists and the audience alike. This is a shared moment of calm, of complexity simplified, and everything from the overly colourful yet smooth presentation to the lyrics and the vocal delivery works well to represent this at every step.
What works well about the completed piece is the way the music builds and builds throughout – beginning with a simple, piano-led moment of purity, rising up into the full embrace of dance as certain playful instrumental breaks pave the way.

What is basically an anthem for self-discovery and individuality, “Your Satisfaction is Fake” implores all of us to thoughtfully reflect on the contents of our being.
BLM is an addictively smooth and somewhat classic sounding track that tips its hat to the legends of yesteryear. M.O.A.S is thoughtful with his bars, you can hear a depth of perspective and that lets these connect on a whole new level.

The relationship & the descriptive nature of the lyrics at the heart of the song shout out for positivity & hold close to a blissful view of the world.

Sweet Surrender offers a lot in the way of that big band, jazz-funk, almost Christmas joy style of musicality. A memorable, warm track – loaded with good vibes, soul, and a dash of rock & roll.
There’s a clear love story being told within the lyrics, also portrayed well through Alex’s singing. The emotion in his voice is relatable. We’ve all been in a place where we’ve been thinking about that one person in the most chaotic or socially inappropriate of times.
