Alex Lahey ~ You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me

ALEX LAHEY You Don't Think You Like People Like Me Arwork!

Who is ALEX LAHEY?  A singer/songwriter based in Melbourne!  Also a member of the band Animaux, LAHEY is set to release her debut EP this May.  In full band mode, members include: Alex Lahey (vox, guitars), Kai Chen Lim (bass), Sam Humphrey (guitars), Lachie McGeehan (drums) and Oscar Dawson (guitars, percussion, bvs)!

My first impression of “You Don’t Think You Like People Like MeA playfully catchy indie rock track around a perfect relationship kept behind closed doors and frustratingly out of the spotlight of opinionated eyes!

My take : As the old saying goes, “what the heart loves, the will chooses, and the mind justifies“.  Throw in caring about what other people might think and everything changes at least on the surface.  In the dubiously long titled song “You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me”, ALEX LAHEY seems to pull me into a ‘he loves me, he loves me not‘ type of situation.  Where making the right decision may not be as easy as it should be.  Taking in conversational lyrics that feel personal and meaningful, LAHEY directs my attention towards a certain someone or at least a particular type of person that hides behind the hypothetical judgement of others with an unwillingness to let things happen.  In a similar way,  “You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me” uses an upbeat façade of high-spirited guitars and an upbeat tempo to shield what sounds like deep-rooted feelings of confusion and frustration.  Ultimately using a carefree attitude to lightheartedly point a finger at a scenario that might mean a little more than initially let on but silly nonetheless!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
