Alex Lahey hocked her beloved 1999 blue Corolla to pay for the recording of her debut EP. First single out of the boot was 2016's Air Mail, introducing the airwaves to the Melbourne-based singer-songwriter's knack for melodic, guitar-driven hooks.

Most recently Lahey has set the music industry abuzz with the insanely catchy You Don't Think You Like People Like Me. From the attention-grabbing opening bars (those drums sound like an angry landlord thumping your front door on a Sunday morning), it flips the classic break-up line «it's not you, it's me» on its head. Upon release in March, People… was immediately added to rotation on triple j, triple j unearthed, Syn FM and FBi FM, and started popping up on music blogs everywhere. It was then Pitchfork gave it Best New Track and got the rest of the world talking.
A founding member of avant poppers Animaux, multi-instrumentalist Lahey has now gone solo and pared down her sound, embracing a simple, home-spun story-telling style that's often underlined by her second love, the fuzz pedal.
Along with her new three-piece band and producer Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy, Ali Barter), Lahey is set to release her debut EP later in 2016 — bound to be the year's greatest Corolla-funded release.
«This rules. Killer songwriting, hook filled chorus, plenty of punch in the delivery.» — Zan Rowe, triple j
«The opening riff is a taut study in Room on Fire-era Strokes, and her writing lands somewhere between the charming specificity of Courtney Barnett and the soulful, emphatic delivery of fellow Aussie rockers Royal Headache.» — Jen Pelly, Associate Editor Pitchfork
«Do! Yourselves! A! Favour!» — WhoTheHell
«One of the brightest talents in Melbourne» — Adamnoteve.net
«Personality-packed vocals and an infectious energy, its only a matter of time before her music reaches your ears» — Mismatch.tv
«Packed with an affability and charm that made me fall head over heels in love with Alex Lahey» — SoundlySounds
