Alexandra Savior - The Archer
Feb 15, 2020

With her debut, Alexandra captured the attention of the large, and passionate, Arctic Monkeys fanbase, thanks to the Monkeys' famed frontman, Alex Turner, co-writing and co-producing the album. Being a part of that fanbase, I was also brought to Alexandra's music and was quite pleased with it, but I was unsure of what was to come with this album since Turner was not attached at all. After being virtually obsessed with this album since it came out, it's safe to say that Turner was not the reason I liked Alexandra's music because this album takes everything that was good about her debut and improves it.

The Archer is a short, but incredibly moving, 10 tracks that seamlessly mixes the sadness of failed relationships with the catchiness of her indie pop style. The 10 tracks blend together beautifully, while being diverse at the same time. Despite its title, the song “Crying All the Time” is one of the more upbeat and catchy tracks on the album, but goes along with the more somber tracks, such as both the opening and closing tracks.

Her vocal performance is stellar, her songwriting is beautiful and moving (even without the help of Alex Turner), and she completely proved me wrong with this one.

Fav Tracks: Soft Currents, Crying All the Time, Howl, Can’t Help Myself, The Phantom, The Archer
