Before I begin I should state how I am not as up on Alexia’s Eyes Set To Kill band as I would like to be but since a bunch of my friends are rallying behind them, I know its material that I’ll be getting around to sooner than later. I know that a pair of twins run the show and lead singer Alexia Rodrqiguez has offered up a completely different solo side-project and when a trusted press contact asks you to give it a listen you do. With this album, Alexia calls herself “Lexia” and the release itself is called “Underground Sounds”. The first single from this Independent Release comes care of the song “Basements”. Here are some quick thoughts about it.
It’s important to note that this is NOT anything like ESTK at all and has a more Atmospheric Pop sensitive vibe to it. It’s quite a solid tune and something you would expect to hear on mainstream Top 40 radio or as an original composition offered up by an “American Idol” contestant. It’s got a danceable vibe and Lexia’s melodic register is accompanied by what appears to be programmed drumming and bass with some synthesizers. I listened to it two or three times in a row before penning this narrative and I’ll admit that I would not be adverse to seeing her do this sort of side project in the live sense. As you’ve seen on our site for a few years now, you know we love shows. This might not be much like Metal at all but sometimes you have to broaden your horizons to support the talented people in said scene. If you like ESTK and are only focused on their Metalcore vibe, this might not appeal to you but if you are a diehard to her musical presentation as a whole you might want to give this track a chance. The full album comes out in October, and I’ll try to get a longer review of that for you too. Single reviews are not often done here but I like the idea of them every now and again. Good luck Alexia. Hope to see you rocking sometime soon. My Amazon.com link below is for the full-album and not just the single that is discussed above.
