Day 23 of our 2018 charity Advent Calendar, in aid of Julie’s Bicycle. Listen to all this year’s donations.
Host of Reprezent Radio’s addictive Mellowdic Show, London-based lyricist, Lex Amor’s monthly dip into musical spices champions vibes upon vibes from artists near and far. Consistently a treat for the soul and the same can be said for Lex’s own musical output.
Most find it challenge enough to express oneself in everyday life, and the case possibly the same for Amor; yet in music it seems she has found a medium in which she would struggle to hide her true self. Such is the ease and natural cadence of Amor’s delivery, you find yourself hanging off her every word. “Cotton socks”, is just another example of her ability to translate her full self in her music. Beats and rhymes you won’t be able to keep off repeat.
Lex’s words about the track: “I found the beat on Soundcloud and loved it immediately – it’s produced by Leplezett who’s from Hungary. I’ve reached out a couple times but those lot are seriously hard to get through to!
Anyway, it explores the norms of growing up in inner city London. In and around both the madness and tranquility – then reflecting on how that affects us into adulthood.”
