Hometown: ALX is a 22 year-old self-producer singer-songwriter from Scotland.

Style: Plenty of mystery surrounds ALX and we’re really excited by this, his first release. Beautiful Criminal is a slickly produced modern love song using RnB and electronic beats to showcase ALX’s impressive vocal. He’s a fan of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Justin Timberlake which goes some way to explaining this first showing.  

You need to know: So far, the information on ALX can mostly be filed under ‘classified’. There’s a seductive video for Beautiful Criminal, a handful of Tweets and a few disguised press shots. Expect the mystery to slowly unravel as more tracks get released and he builds towards live shows.

Supported by: Beautiful Criminal was an instant hit for our dynamic Radio 1 duo, Jen and Ally, who’ve already given it a number of airings.
