Pierce Alexander released a new single, “Midnight Walk,” on Friday. It’s the artist’s first release since his debut album, The Minutehand, which dropped earlier this year.
“Midnight Walk” is a track that, according to Alexander, “Opens up a window into the life of a narrator who is attempting to pick up the pieces of a broken marriage.” This concept is evident through the repetition of lines like “It feels like I don’t know you anymore.”
Sonically, “Midnight Walk” has a fuzzed-out, bedroom pop quality that melds flawlessly with the melancholy theme of the track. Alexander’s vocals have an almost downtrodden inflection, and a slide guitar emphasizes the emotion.
You can catch Pierce Alexander live at Lofi Brewing on October 7th with Deep Sea Peach Tree and Katie Sachs. In the meantime, stream “Midnight Walk” below.
