The collection ebbs and flows steadily, and it’s undeniably sleek in its vintage Americana-style production. Some songs leave the listener gagging for more, as Savior flexes masterful lyrics, effortless style and poise. This is a timeless collection.

Okay. First of all, Alexandra Savior has some damn fine vocals... very beautifully-delivered. They mesh really well with the overall psychedelic production, which is also quite beautiful. I'm not sure if I'm gonna come back to this or not, but the results on "The Archer" are definitely worth a shot for its 30-minute runtime.

Fav Tracks: Can't Help Myself, Soft Currents, Bad Disease, Saving Grace, Crying All the Time, The Archer

Delicate. Beautiful. Vulnerable. Yet somehow empowering. An incredible break up/intoxicating love album. Alexandra’s vocals and aura remind me of a mix of Amy Winehouse and Christina Perri.

Only complain I have is I would like to see her tackle different themes but wow just wow.

Throughout the middle of the album my brain got caught up in the psychedelic like production it really blocked out the songwriting for me and thats what really had to be a tack off. I think her ... read more

i knew this was going to be good but my god i wasn't expecting to be this impressed with it

Alexandra Savior is an artist i've been following since 2017, after finding out Alex Turner was on production duty on her debut. i came off it very satisfied, though many of the tracks were just Savior singing Turner's lyrics over some indie pop instrumentation.

however, on The Archer, Savior shows an improvement on all fronts, writing beautiful poems throughout this LP that blow anything on her ... read more
