(Sandy) Alex G amends name, shares new Rocket single “Proud”
Two new updates from Alex G: the local musician has now adopted his social media handle (Sandy) Alex G as his official moniker, most likely in an effort to further differentiate his bedroom indie rock from the YouTube-famous pop covers of a different Alex G; and he’s shared a new track from the forthcoming Rocket LP due out on May 19th.
“Proud” follows up lead singles “Witch” and “Bobby” with an official lyric video that pairs the audio with fun-n-friends footage filmed in NYC. It continues the folksier vibe we heard on “Bobby” but trades in the fiddle for a jangly, tinkling piano, accenting the acoustic melody that bounces along with the lyrics.
