Alexandra goes in for the kill in her "Criminal" music video...
Hailing from a small town in Australia and with dreams of finding a place in the ever-evolving music world, rising talent Alexandra is prepared to explode onto the scene. With a passion for the arts, the Aussie has explored a multitude of creative outlets, all of which have fostered a creative spark that sets her aside from fellow up and comers.
Pulling inspiration from a wide range of subject matter and life events, Alexandra began pursuing music professionally to continue evolving her creative spark. Inspired by acts such as Lana Del Rey, Rihanna, Jay Z, and The Rolling Stones for their evocative music and striking presence, the rising talent hit the studio and has emerged with her first taste of things to come on debut single "Criminal."
The track displays the musician's impressive skills as a vocalist and lyricist, and the story behind it showcases her unique form of storytelling. The song's chorus arose from hearing gunshots from a distant farm. The startling sound evolved into the basis of "Criminal," and puts her and her imaginary lover on the run.
The single showcases a harder edged pop rock aesthetic, and it sets the scene for a memorable performance from the Aussie siren. Playing the role of an accomplice to her lover's crimes, Alexandra vows to do whatever she can to keep her man safe. "I can be bad with you, I can be a sinner" the hitmaker announces over the growling soundscape. Her voice is entirely alluring as it coos across the production, growing more and more insistent as the track evolves to it's shocking conclusion.
The accompanying music video transforms the Aussie rocker into a femme fatale, as she poses and serves badassery for the camera. Shot with a series of filters that distort the background, Alexandra effectively captivates her audience with the noir-inspired treatment. Appearing in the midst of a torrent of dangerous imagery, she rises from the chaos as a powerful icon.
