Alexa Dark debuts her new single and music video, “Empty Drinks,” via She Shreds. She Shreds praised the track and accompanying video, stating, “With its biting lyrics, apathetic mood, and crunchy guitars, the record’s title track recalls some of the best 90s alt-rock anthems.” The video’s live element highlights both the grit and the glamour of Alexa Dark’s musical style and look.
Raised between Spain, London and Germany, now based in New York City and London, the songs are inspired by Alexa Dark’s transient lifestyle. The songs were written in bedrooms, planes, between drinks outside East London
clubs during early morning hours and on the concrete of various metropolitan cities. Conceived in heartbreak, in transit and from boundless nostalgia, these tracks intertwine cultural and personal narratives, influenced by the Spanish singer songwriters played in her childhood kitchen, in addition to female rock legends such as Patti Smith, Debbie Harry and Kim Gordon.
Empty Drinks/Empty Hearts is a collection of songs cultivated in the brief moment when the party is over, when the sobriety comes just before the morning does. “Blur” is one of the first songs Alexa wrote and has evolved to cater to many different relationships and situations throughout her life. It’s a “f*** it” anthem, of sorts, but still portrays vulnerability, baring her bones. “Nothing More” is an “anti-love” song, about loving but in an untraditional sense.
Referring to the EP’s title, “Empty Drinks” is a party anthem that encapsulates the sober realization and reflection on the emptiness felt at the end of the night.
