Alexandra John’s New Single Is the Remedy For Your “Lonely Night”

Alexandra John, the musical duo formed by twin siblings Liza and Weston Cain, immerses listeners through their hypnotic indie-electro pop sound. Their music, combining feminine and masculine energies, addresses common human experiences such as anxiety, addiction, grief, and loss. After launching their first EP, "Healing," a product of confinement during the pandemic, Alexandra John is advancing in the music scene with their upcoming single, "Lonely Night," set to be released on Friday, June 9th.

"Lonely Night" showcases the duo's ability to blend multiple influences into their music. The track infuses an 80's disco-pop vibe with a laid-back drum pattern and mesmerizing guitar melodies, resulting in a sound reminiscent of Glass Animals and Massive Attack's musical styles. The lyrics relate to the feelings of loneliness and the longing for escapism, conveying hope. The song suggests that one can discover inner peace by embracing the present's uncertainty.

To complement the music's auditory aesthetic, the "Lonely Night" music video provides a visual concept inspired by the disco and soul eras, which many would deem as “the good old days.” Washed with vibrant neon colors and diffused crowd-filled landscapes, the video captures the highs and lows of a night out, ranging from exhilaration to isolation. As viewers follow Liza and Weston through the story, they witness a representation of solitude that embodies the band's message: it is through navigating loneliness that one can truly discover themselves. With the release of "Lonely Night," Alexandra John delivers a powerful message while artfully blending nostalgic music and contemporary sound elements.
