Alex Sloane - Dynasty
According to the single's press release, every song off her upcoming EP was written solely by Alex herself. The project straddles the boundary of indie and pop with a wide range of influences varying from track to track, including some strains of R&B, trap and even K-pop, providing a sturdy foundation for Sloane's bold, sensual vocals. Even the artwork is a product of Alex's boundless creative enthusiasm. Her desire to express her own vision accurately even led to her self-direct and edit the video for her debut single, "G2G", which since its release in early July has already amassed close to 100,000 views on YouTube.
Speaking on the track, Alex says:
"Growing up mixed race was difficult at times because in the valley, I was the most 'ethnic' person in my class. But my parents would tell me stories about our royal ancestry, and I found pride in my heritage. 'Dynasty' is an ode to that pride."
