Alix Page has today shared “Radiohead”, the second single from her upcoming debut EP ‘Old News’, which is set to be released in January.
Page invokes her most intimate sound yet, with just sparse guitars, sweeping synths and dancing violin lines she sounds utterly mystifying. The Phoebe Bridgers within her comes to the forefront of this track as she tries to deal with the fallout of a break. “I think that she was on your mind while you were on my neck / and I think you might have ruined Radiohead” she sings, breaking your heart with her tender tone.
Speaking about the track Page said:
“[Radiohead] is proof that you can be completely over someone and then have a dream about them and fall right back into feelings you didn’t know you still had.” explains Page. “Around this time last year I had a dream about me and an ex moving into an apartment and painting it together. We hadn’t spoken in months and I genuinely hadn’t thought about it in a while but it felt SO scarily real. I woke up flustered and heard the whole thing in my head before I even got out of bed; I wrote the first verse and chorus right away.
It wasn’t difficult to write technically but it made me face some hard truths during the process. I didn’t realize I still had some unresolved feelings about it until I was writing the chorus and saying those words out loud. That was kind of my way of coming to terms with the reality of that breakup and accepting the way things went. It’s really just a list of things I wish I could’ve said to that person at that moment.”
