London Based Alex O’Connor has completely stolen my heart in 2017, and I can’t even imagine what he has in store for 2018 that could be even better. After being ‘discovered’ by Tyler, The Creator in 2016, he’s just gone from strength to strength.
The release of his album “Apricot Princess” earlier this year brought an influx of fans and critical acclaim, and not for no reason. “Apricot Princess” is one of the most beautiful, honest and candid albums of 2017. The way he expresses himself can at times be so blunt and brutally honest that it’s unexpected. It’s fresh and new, and it’s a modern description of love that is sometimes ignored in favour of an older more romanticised view.
I actually can’t wait to see what he has in store for 2018, it’ll be exciting to hear what’s next for him.
