Simon Alexander is a singer-songwriter from Sweden. He first emerged in 2017 and has breathed new air into the modern folk scene since then. Having more than 2.5 million streams on Spotify, several big festival gigs around Scandinavia and features in both films and video games, Simon is on the right path to becoming one of the new hot music topics.
Simon has created something unique with a style that combines folk music with a pop-rock attitude and clear, emotional vocals. A sound that is pleasing to the ears, something that could be playing on the radio but at the same time would definitely rock out a big crowded gig.
Along Came June, released on June 10, 2022, is a song about summer and what comes with it. As Simon Alexander says, “With summer comes a plethora of emotions – especially for young adults, living freely and learning about the ways of life. With that in mind, the song talks about watching your own back to avoid being taken advantage of since summer also wakes the more animalistic side of a man“.
The song has some nice vibes and presents this concept without being too dark or getting lost in the lyrics. The groove makes you move your head and feet to the rhythm, and the guitar strumming blends everything together nicely. Simon Alexander’s vocals feel very well placed and have a sexy -kinda rock star- vibe but at the same time, really -down to earth- tone to them.
Along Came June is a great listen; I loved it from the beginning to the end, and it’s already on some of my personal playlists.
