Alex Kahn With His Outstanding Track "Lorelai"

Philadelphia-based songwriter and composer Alex Kahn has weaved a strange path through diverse musical terrain. After making fuzzed-out pop gems with indie rock outfit Jackpot, Tiger, and penning jingles for cereal commercials, Kahn eventually started to release music under his own name. While working as a writer and producer at Frisbie Studios in NYC, he collaborated with artists such as Benji Hughes and Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, among others, contributing as a studio musician and co-writer.Kahn’s latest release, “The Marble Jar”, combines furry guitars, spidery vocals, and dry wit to create soft, tender songs that both comfort and disturb. After the unexpected death of his father and two cross-country moves, Kahn returned home to redraw the map of an unrecognizable life. Oscillating between the bright jangle-pop of 1991 and the faint intimations of Elliott Smith, Kahn explores the raw pain of grief, the uncomfortable realities of close relationships, and the crisis of belonging. While the front half of the record leans into the comic absurdity of ordinary life, the back half plays like a string of adult lullabies about loss. His brand is a delicate tightrope walk between various opposites. Following the release of his newest track "Lorelai" he projects a very soothing sound that will surely capture your ears. Beginning the track with a nice guitar instrumentation leading onto his soft and luscious vocals he completes the track entirely. Explaining the track further it's about a love letter to his dog. It explores the non-verbal communication that occurs between a person and their dog. How do we live in such intimate communion with another being for so long and not have a single conversation in human language, yet so much is said and expressed. He wrote this song inspired by their long walks through LA. The song also gets into some feelings of helplessness and control. How do we embark on relationships with pets when we know we will outlive them. There is a feeling of “pre-grief” that accompanies this song and is expressed fully in the last verse. We take a leap of faith and bring this love into our lives knowing that they’re going to die and so are we. All we can do is jump into the fire. The track would be perfect for a late night drive or being alone with your thoughts. Go stream "Lorelai" and check out their discography which is filled with amazing tracks.
