OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Alex Spinney is a British singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from South London. After releasing his debut single ‘I Remember’ last year, Alex returns in 2022 with the soulful offering ‘Boodiyayay’. A finger-clicking swinging track, ‘Boodiyayay’ flaunts Alex’s lush silvery vocals, which seamlessly float across a hypnotic blues-folk inflected soundscape.
“To me, this song is a cathartic, revenge-filled anthem, detailing the brutal end of a pretty rocky relationship, which ended in a particularly cruel way.” Alex shares on the meaning behind the track
The track’s inception all started with a voice note that Alex left on his phone when the riff for what later became ‘Boodiyayay’ came to him. The track came to life at Iguana Records (Brixton) where Alex worked with producers Adam Connor and Beni Giles (Lianne La Havas).
“People will inevitably ask what 'Boodiyayay' means, and the real answer is that it's open to interpretation! I think it has a slight element of witchcraft about it, which for me places it in this very earthy world of catharsis and revenge, almost as if one is cleansing oneself of a past relationship. Hopefully the song takes people on this journey to find closure as it builds to its huge, powerful climax.” Alex adds
After begging his parents to let him learn piano at 4 years old, Alex Spinney quickly developed a love for making music. Growing up, Alex experimented with a wide range of different genres, but whichever direction he took, he always gravitated back to the world of contemporary pop music.
Alex brands his music as 'piano-based pop', and likes to infuse his style of pop with splashes of different musical worlds, including folk, classical, soul and blues. He writes music that allows him to wrap his distinctively honeyed vocals around emotive melodies and classic pop choruses, all whilst looking at life's events from his own, unique perspective.
With a love for the arts all round, Alex enjoys all things related to film and theater. A self-described queer artist, Alex is also passionate about LBGTQ rights and issues.
