Discovery: Alex Opal

Alex Opal is a funk and soul producer from Newcastle who already has the backing of BBC Radio 6’s Craig Charles. We’ve discovered him ourselves through his new track Telling You Lies.

By Graeme Smith

I was hooked on Telling You Lies as soon as the horns kicked in. Complementing the urgent guitar riff perfectly, the composition of this track is sublime. The icing on the cake is the soulful vocals delivered by collaborator Jam Jam.

Hailing from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Alex Opal is hotly tipped to take the British soul scene by storm. Telling You Lies is a barnstormer of a track and you’ve got to give it a listen below.
