Welcome to another Space Discovery! Once again, we came across another incredible artist, and we are glad to feature this project today here on SpaceSour.
We talking about ALEXIANE, a singer and songwriter based in Canada, Montreal.
Alexiane has gained millions of streams on Spotify on many of her tracks: her electronic-cinematic pop style has captured the heart of the fans, with her astonishing voice and her creative musical arrangements.
“You Say You Love Me” is the release we want you to hear today, released a few months ago, and is part of her brand new album including 19 tracks. You can listen to the album below:
The song starts with a piano and a guitar, playing some melancholic chords, and Alexiane singing along with a compelling and vibrant vocal tone which reminded us of the style of Dua Lipa and Lana Del Rey mixed together. The vocal lines are incredibly well written, we can feel the emotional notes coming from the bottom of her heart: this is what gives the tune a unique character making it very remarkable.
The song goes ahead on the verse with a rhythmic guitar strumming and some ambient pads, with the vocals leading the song in an emotional manner. After the verse, the drums come into the game during the chorus with an upbeat rhythm and some detailed percussions that add groove to the whole thing.
This is a high-quality pop production that caught our ears, but we can assure you that the rest of the album will guide you for sure to a very good time while listening: Let’s enjoy it while we wait for her next releases!
Welcome to Space Alexiane.
Congratulations on your new single “You Say You Love Me”! Briefly present yourself to our Space Travellers!
Hey! Thanks! I’m Alexiane, a Canadian, Senegalese and french singer-songwriter and producer currently based in Montreal. Creating melodies is my passion. I would qualify my sound as an alternative cinematic dark pop. I’ve just released my very first album « Into the sun » this year! It’s out there <3!
What’s the story behind your latest release?
« You say you love me » was created out of a desire for love. A desire to finally love and accept myself the way that I am and a desire to be loved by the love of my life and by others more generally — despite my heavy suitcases (as portrayed in the music video) filled with wounds, insecurities, doubts, fears and pressure.
Love has so many facets; it is so complex. It’s my eternal puzzle. I think It’s the most beautiful thing when you feel it and the most difficult thing when you don’t. I encourage everyone to keep fighting to discover all the different facets of love life has to offer us. It may sound generic but I truly believe it.
The first seeds of « You say you love me » were planted on a beautiful afternoon at my aunt’s house in Los Angeles with my best friend Igor Kempeneers. Just him and I and a piano.
What are your plans for the future?
More music, more collaborations and a second album in space 😉 (I’m currently recording a lot in the studio for my second album)! Also, I’ll be having a show in Dakar on July 30th 2022 and will join the Salif Keita USA tour in August and September 2022.
More of helping the world too. It’s really important for me to try to help reduce people’s suffering in any way I can and give them a certain feeling of empowerment through my music.
If you had a time machine, in which era would you travel and which kind of music would you bring with you in the past?
I would definitely travel to the 80s to try to attend an 80s Madonna show — and I would bring no music from now from the past but I would definitely bring my mic along haha😝
