Alex St Joan - Kick And Rise 2019
 ALEX ST JOAN: Debut EP “KICK & RISE” (Zellephan) features 4 distinctive songs that discard the posturing of youth and lay down what it is to be an adult; vulnerable and fully accountable. Whether using fractured synth-saxophones to hammer out a paean to self-determination or building a song around a heartbeat, ALEX ST JOAN is not taking the easy way out. “All of the things that you see as your failings are made up” is a contender for one of the most emotionally sharp lines of the year, yet it’s delivered with such hopeful romanticism one might be forgiven for not noticing the thorns amongst the flowers.
These are adult dilemmas; not boy meets girl but woman meets morality, agency, self-actualization. In merely 4 songs, ALEX ST JOAN builds a framework for us to face our fears, ask the tough questions and then let them go.

ALEX ST JOAN is the avant-garde pop project from musician and producer Alexia Peniguel. She works with layered vocals and sampled sounds to create a brand of avant-garde pop that could only come out of Berlin. Her debut EP KICK & RISE (Zellephan Records) features 4 distinctive songs that discard the posturing of youth and lay down what it is to be an adult; vulnerable and fully accountable.

Whether using fractured synth-saxophones to hammer out a paean to self-determination in title track KICK & RISE or building the poignant UNBROKEN THREAD around a heartbeat both literally and metaphorically, ALEX ST JOAN is not taking the easy way out. “All of the things that you see as your failings are made up” is a contender for one of the most emotionally sharp lines of the year, yet it’s delivered with such hopeful romanticism one might be forgiven for not noticing the thorns amongst the flowers.

On the surface, the songs have a softness and beauty to them, brought about not only by the clarity of ALEX ST JOAN’s voice, but through an underlying thread of compassion. At the same time, they share an edge and unflinching candour that can only come about when you take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror. These are adult dilemmas; not boy meets girl, but woman meets morality, agency, self-actualisation.

“Get to the bit where it hurts / get to the dregs and the dirt / the best of the worst”, is ALEX ST JOAN’s brave demand and indeed she does. In merely 4 songs, she builds a framework for us to face our fears, ask the tough questions and then let them go when we realise that we do not have all the answers and we probably never will: “The fire is burning / your words are going down / I would leave here, oh I would leave / but I’m in for the long run”.
