Lexxa - Single Review: Get Out

20 Nov 2018 // A review by Rupa Kelly

Lexxa returns with Get Out, a follow up to their synth pop jam I Got Better Friends Now. After a good year of touring and opening for both local and international heavyweights, Get Out is an excellent second studio release.

The track starts out slow, a soothing beat is played out on an electric drumkit with some slight guitar to accompany it before smashing straight into the chorus. The layers supplied through the tasty 80's tone of the synthesiser give this track a well-timed summer vibe that makes the listener just want to get up and dance. Combined with the hook of the chorus, the track presents a punchy and exciting approach to the subject matter of personal freedom.

On the musical side of things, the track is well layered in rhythms and melody, it's ultimately a very fun track, the synth takes up the melody of the track, creating that neon spacey vibe that is so loved in synth pop. The drum track is very well paced, in the verse it's methodical and building while in the chorus it so inhabits that idea of breaking free and well, getting out by bursting through with a powerful beat.

Get out is another fantastic installment from the duo and without a doubt there will be far more to come of this quality from Lexxa.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )

24 Oct 2018 // by Rupa Kelly
Strangely Arousing, hot off their strangely unconventional 7-date tour of South Korea and China crashed into the Tuning Fork In a hot beat and fantastic fashion. Bringing with them Joe's Van and their own DJ Straw Hat providing enjoyable jams between sets, the night was bursting with potential.

Gig Review: Depths @ Ding Dong Lounge, Auckland 28/07/2018
30 Jul 2018 // by Rupa Kelly
It's been awhile since I found myself at a metal gig, long gone are the days of black clad, sweaty moshing where everything ended in the word ‘core’, deathcore, hardcore, grindcore. Funnelling into the small room that formed Ding Dong Lounge's upstairs gig room, smelling the sweat of closely pressed flannel donner bodies revelling in the burning of energy and joy at the expression of art categorised as metal brought back fond memories of 16-year-old me, Saturday nights spent at my local venue with close friends.
