Alex Winston has a knack for choosing odd subjects for her lyrics. Her previous single, “Sister Wife” – which we featured in our Summer Mixtape – described the inherent difficulties in a polygamous relationship. Now, for her latest single “Velvet Elvis”, she has chosen to examine the notion of objectum sexuality, whereby people fall in love and develop sexual feelings towards objects. And yes, the object in question is a velvet Elvis doll: “Ma said I ain’t right / Clutching on you all night / But you’re my, you’re my guy / Elvis”…”.When I feel your velvet / I can’t help it / You don’t breathe / So you can’t leave me”.
She is working on her debut album with a release date set for January 2012 – and we can safely asume it will be pretty damn good. She certainly keeps things interesting, and consistently delivers great, infectious tracks. We cannot wait for her to surprise us with her next single.
