Interview with NYC-based rising alternative rock singer-songwriter Alexa Dark

With a vintage sound that is at once cinematic and captivatingly intimate, Alexa Dark is revealing her signature sound for the first time, introducing herself to worldwide audiences with a graceful alternative rock ballad. We had the opportunity to chat with her about her debut single and music video, her inspirations, upcoming plans, and more! 

Hi Alexa!

Hey!

What first got you into music? How did it all start?

I’ve always had a love for music. Nobody in my family really played music, but it was always a constant stream of different music of various genres and artists – from the Spanish songwriters my mom would sing along to in our kitchen to older rock n roll albums. I grew up in a multicultural household, as well as moving and traveling a lot, which exposed me to a lot of different music from different parts of the world at a young age. Hearing all the ways artists could create music made me want to create my own. I started playing piano and then guitar, and found I could join my love for writing and music together. Making music became an outlet for my own expression.

What inspired you to write and record “Fade to Black and Blue”?

My producer sent me an idea for a chord progression late one night when I was alone in my New York City apartment, and the music seemed to capture exactly what I was feeling at that moment in life. The lyrics kind of came flowing out of me. I’ve always been inspired a lot by films, and love the idea that I can soundtrack a feeling with music like a scene in a movie. 

Are you more of a performer, a recording artist, or both?

I always will be more of a performer, since that’s how I initially got into music. Living in London during my teenage years, I had the chance to get involved in the live scene early on, playing both solo and with different bands. On these stages, I was able to start growing as an artist, honing my sound and connecting directly with the audience. When I started recording it was a completely different experience, but the studio is also a place where I can be more creative and try new things out.

When you are not making music, how do you like spending your free time?

I love spending time with friends, checking out new restaurants, art galleries, and other things going on in the city – I live in New York City so there’s always something to be a part of and get inspired by.

What’s the first thing you notice when listening to a song for the first time?

For me, the initial impact of a song is always the feeling I get from hearing those first few notes. I’ve always had such an emotional connection to music, where some songs, across genres and styles, strike me and stick with me in a powerful way.

Who are your favorite artists, past and present and why?

I love a lot of the French 60’s pop artists like Serge Gainsbourg, who’s use of instrumentation and production is an inspiration to me when I’m recording. I also love Joni Mitchell, who uses her voice and lyrics in such a powerful way. Elliott Smith is one of my favorite artists and has been a key influence on me as a songwriter. The darkness and vulnerability in his songs hits me in a way few other artists do.
