Alexa Dexa is a soulful girl with bells and bubbles. Her fanciful indie electro-pop-tronic concoctions blend floating vocals, poignant lyrics with catchy hooks, haunting melodies, and dance-worthy beats. (Not to mention a collection of toy instruments that would put many playpens to shame, the most favored of which is her Schoenhut toy piano.) She embodies a freedom of spirit and exhibits pure devotion to evocative tunes and unconventional performance.
There is a striking duality between the mature content of Alexa Dexa's songs and the child-like whimsy that they render. She finds a place of unconditioned wonder to weave into songs that she'll play on your heartstrings. To accompany her performances, she composes installations and creates ethereal atmospheres that melt away the edges of perception.
