Discovery: Caicos

Caicos is the musical pseudonum of singer-songwriter Alex Frenkel, with Wake Up being his latest bouncy single to be released.

By Jane Howkins

It’s very well written, with a fantastic melody running throughout the song that reminds us of the way pop songs used to be written in the 60s. Caicos has a lovely smooth vocal style, and the strings are absolutely gorgeous. In terms of genre, the track mixes together jazz and pop to make something that sounds very different to the usual onslaught of pop music heard in the charts. We also enjoyed the way the piano melody runs throughout Wake Up, and we found ourselves reminded somewhat of Ben Folds’ solo work. Have a listen to Wake Up below and see what you think!
