Lexxa - "Slow Fade Out"


Got this in my email today and realized I'd been so busy running my professional basketball team that I'd been neglecting my favorite platform. Something about the email subject caught my attention and the song is dope. Something hip to blog to. I'm a fan. Check the official words:
On this Saint Valentine's day, kiwi alt-pop duo LEXXA share a vivacious new bop that is anything but a love day tribute. Sorry loved up relationship people, this one isn’t for you.

Co-written with the inimitable combined forces of Chelsea Jade, Jess B and Nakita at a recent APRA AMCOS SongHubs workshop, slow fade out is the follow up to Maude and Julia Morris’ earlier earworm get out. The latter premiered worldwide on US Billboard in November, and featured on Billboard’s Best of 2018 list as chosen by the chart team and readers.

With gutsy, heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics, the pair broach the nauseating undercurrents of millennial dating over expansive synth arrangements that pay homage to the 80s. slow fade out is a snapshot of a whirlwind romance gone cold; an emotional implosion brought on by the blurring of lines and misunderstandings over what is and what isn’t. It is the experience of a natural disintegration of a relationship, dragged out over the course of time without ever meaning for it to end, yet never really knowing where it began. A beautiful, messy accident.
