[SINGLE REVIEW] Alex Lahey // Every Day’s The Weekend

Off the back of a 12-month tour of her first album, Alex Lahey has wasted no time dropping her next gem. Working once again in production with Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson, the 25-year-old Melbourne songwriter dropped her new single yesterday.

Every Day’s The Weekend is what seems to be a natural progression for the up and coming songwriter. Her iconic happy/sad sound has rung true through this punky ode to young love. Lahey has once again produced a melodic track that you’ll find hard not to tap along to. Leaning more on the happy side in comparison with her 2016 EP B-Grade University, Lahey has managed to still capture the boppy angst that her fans seem to love so much. Subtly experimenting with vocals, she arguably dabbles in a punkier sound than anything else she has released to date. Whilst ticking a lot of boxes, Every Day’s The Weekend doesn’t get stuck in your head quite like many of her hit tunes, however, If Every Day’s The Weekend successfully captures the vibe of the upcoming album, indie rock fans everywhere will soon be rejoicing. Lahey’s first album, I Love You Like A Brother is due to drop October 6th, with her album tour kicking off October 4th.
