Daily Dose: (Sandy) Alex G, “Fay”

Daily Dose is your daily source for the song you absolutely, positively need to hear every day. Curated by the Paste Music Team.

We loved Rocket, the album (Sandy) Alex G released last year. As Ben Salmon wrote of the prolific singer-songwriter, ”[(Sandy) Alex G] wants to try it all. He’s as interested in misshaping a great song as he is perfecting it.” In 2017, (Sandy) Alex G became known for his collaborations with Frank Ocean and for experimenting with a new, twangy country influence. We can’t be sure, but today’s new track “Fay” may be an indication of where he’s headed next.

On “Fay,” (Sandy) Alex G — real name Alex Giannascoli — crafts a lush, soft pop landscape cast in unexpected darkness. “Here they come knockin’ at my door,” he warns, gently mimicking the sound of a police siren. “What’s the problem, Officer? What you knockin’ for?”

No word yet on whether “Fay” is a standalone track, or part of something bigger (we’re hoping for the latter). Read our 2017 interview with Giannascoli right here.
