On Friday, March 3, UK songwriter and recording artist Alex Kennedy releases his fifth single, “Now That It’s Over,” a groove-filled pop-rock track merging influences from bands like Maroon 5, AC/DC, and Imagine Dragons. Thanks for joining Alchemical Records in this World Premiere of the music/lyric video and public launch of “Now That It’s Over.”
“It’s essentially about moving on in the right direction after a bad relationship and how everything can seem lost until the smoke clears,” says Alex.
Produced by Jack Vasiliou at Surrey Studios, “Now That It’s Over” is free of the bells and whistles of overproduction, choosing to focus the listener’s attention on the dance between drums and bass while Alex’s tastefully placed guitar fills compliment the already efficient primary riff.
Alex Kennedy began his musical journey as a session musician, contributing his guitar talents to the tracks of others until 2018 when the birth of his daughter ignited a fire inside him to record and release his own music. His debut single “Baby Steps” has been praised by Atwood Magazine, XS Noize, Vents Magazine, and Talk About Pop Music; with comparisons to the music of John Mayer, James Morrison, and Norah Jones.
“Now That It’s Over” beautifully compliments Alex Kennedy’s other offerings by highlighting a bit more of his edge. Tracks like “Our Foolish Pride,” “Giving up Giving In” and fan favorite “A Different Song” are equally as engaging, “Now That It’s Over” has the grit to rock you without sacrificing the encouragement and positivity interwoven throughout Alex’s lyrics.
