Discovery: Alexa Valentino

Alexa Valentino is an American musician and singer-songwriter, with Happy For You being her latest release.

By Jane Howkins

Happy For You is a quiet indie-folk song with a subtle feel to it – the main melody has a haunting sound to it, with the song sounding very beautiful to me. Alexa’s vocals are quite understated at times but this suits the style of the song more, and I really enjoyed the main acoustic guitar melody. The percussion was also quite quiet on the chorus, but this worked more with the feel of the song. Have a listen to Happy For You below and see if you agree!
