Lani Ford here! Time to have some fun with my DJ pick today from a young Australian singer/songwriter with a quirky style paying tribute to one of my favorite directors. Check out Alex Lahey and her song “Wes Anderson” below and let us know what you think!
Alex Lahey hocked her beloved 1999 blue Corolla to pay for the recording of her debut EP. First single out of the boot was last year’s Air Mail, introducing the airwaves to the Melbourne-based singer-songwriter’s knack for melodic, guitar-driven hooks.
Most recently Lahey has set the music industry abuzz with the insanely catchy You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me. From the attention-grabbing opening bars (those drums sound like an angry landlord thumping your front door on a Sunday morning), it flips the classic break-up line “it’s not you, it’s me” on its head. Listen to “Wes Anderson” below and all day on Lightning 100!
