Alexander Black is an exciting artist from Adelaide who creatively combines pop production and singer-songwriter craft to produce energetic music with meaningful messaging. Inspired by the likes of The 1975, Troye Sivan, MUNA, The Japanese House, and singer-songwriters like Phoebe Bridgers, Father John Misty and Bob Dylan – Alexander hopes to inspire emotional growth and understanding through his music.
Alexander writes music that speaks to his younger self, providing guidance and promoting confidence in finding your unique self, that he hopes will resonate with audiences and subvert pre-conceived heteronormative ideas about queer narratives and queerness in our society through music.
Alexander Black’s new release ‘Good Times’ (released August 26th, 2022) explores the subversion of the heteronormative expectation that you sleep in the same bed as a midnight tryst – and how the isolating feeling associated with this is not a ‘normal’ thing to want, but something queer people often learn is an expectation to adhere to.
Alexander Black takes old and outdated perspectives of sexual and romantic connections and explores a new way of thinking that strays away from every ‘ideal’ that has been pushed upon him. ‘Good Times’ is the perfect A-romantic bop in the age of the Internet.
