In Forgot To Forgive, an emotionless opening quickly gives way to a delicate and melancholy waltz of a chorus which is great for a good sway. Though a conventional subject, Alex peppers her lyrics with some amusing and memorable phrases. “I tried to take the high road; I drove into the ditch. It turns out heartbreak’s a bitch” is a particular classic.

The video, created by collaborator Iris Kim, sees Alex battling her inner clown in a prison of a bed and mirrors the lyrics perfectly. You can check it out below.
