Nashville based Alternative Pop artist Alexes Hardt recently released her new single Joke.
With dire lyrics like frozen to the bone, I’m choking, now I can’t let go, Alexes uses her unique artistry to turn an unfortunate story about emotional abuse into a catchy track.
“I would love for fans to listen to this song and feel empowered,” Alexes explains. “Although its about a toxic relationship, it’s more about coming out of denial and accepting the relationship for what it is. It’s about taking your power back.”
Nashville hasn’t heard an artist quite like Alexes Hardt. The twenty-six year old Florida native has written bits and pieces of lyrics ever since she was a child. Drawing influences from the direction of modern hits, her production favors the trap drums that have populated rap music but the electronic sounds that have given posters edge to their latest works. Alexes balances these elements with lighter undertones to create atmospheric indie pop that feels like Banks or Fletcher, but with a bite to it like a Travis Scott record. With this unique take on the production, this allows Alexes to flourish with her vocals; a smooth mezzo-soprano ranges that finds the sweet spot to carry the higher and lower notes in her records. Now based in the epicenter of country music, she offers the south a genre of music often replicated but hardly perfected in the best possible way with authentic storytelling that makes you want to get up and dance one second before wanting to key your ex’s car the next. Alexes Hardt is ready to show the world what she has been holding back for oh so long!
