Discovery: Simon Alexander

Brother is the latest release by Swedish folk singer-songwriter Simon Alexander.

By Jane Howkins

It’s a fantastic folk track, with a dark edge to it that really manages to get under your skin in no time. It’s quite a slow song, but that only adds to the emotive feel that it brings to the listener. The main instrumentation is provided by a fingerpicked acoustic guitar and Simon’s vocals, with subtle background effects coming into play towards the end of the song. Brother is a wonderful track – check it out below!
