REX ORANGE COUNTY GETS REAL ON "UNO"

November 23, 2016

 

Hailing from Surrey, U.K., 18 year old Rex Orange County, real name Alex O'Connor, gives us a taste of his new music after heading into the studio with BadBadNotGood. UNO is a track that starts with a jazzy piano riff and later introduces percussion and horns over his spoken vocal style that's met with a half singing chorus with lyrics that speak of feeling lost in the world: "How will I admit that I am falling apart?” His lyrics are full of wit and charm, but he doesn't shy away from keeping things inside his mind. This song comes after his debut "bcos u will never b free", recorded in his bedroom and praised by Tyler the Creator.
