San Francisco-born duo Alexandra John explores the exhausting cycle of toxic relationships in their new music video for “Strung Out.” The video accompanies the single, which is the second single to be released from their debut EP.
To Alexandra John, music is a family affair; Alexandra John is the brainchild of twins Weston and Liza, who used their middle names combined to create their band name. Being raised in the same musical household, working together seems to come natural; they were able to join forces and create music when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the siblings back to their mom’s house in Sonoma, California.
The single itself is a high-energy electro pop record that’s perfect for almost any event; between Liza’s impressive vocal abilities and Weston’s creative melody, “Strung Out” clearly illustrates the gifts that each twin brings to the table.
“The video is based on the toxic relationships/traits that keep you aimless up at night and sometimes partying till sunrise to escape your harsh realities,” wrote the duo. “Sometimes it feels easier to go back to comfort, then dealing with the severe consequences. Breaking ties with a lover, or in general with relationships can be difficult especially when someone is so close to you. “Strung Out” represents the self awareness of cutting ties with that person, place or thing that had been weighing you down all along. Ultimately often our solution is our problem.”
“Strung Out” by Alexandra John is available on major streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and BandCamp. The accompanying music video for “Strung Out” is also available now on YouTube.
