Welcome to BuzzMusic Alexi Paraschos; we feel the emotion and strife in your single "Skyline". What inspired this beautiful, heartfelt piece?
All of my songs on my most recent project are inspired by my (now) wife (we had a pandemic wedding!). We also just moved to Los Angeles from Philly, which has a very distinctive skyline, so the idea came from the love of my wife and the city of Philadelphia. What was your songwriting process like for "Skyline?" Would you say it was somewhat cathartic, considering your performance is so passionate?
I loved the idea of a skyline as a metaphor for someone's lover. And I think there is a sense of home that comes with being in love that is similar to the way one feels when gazing out at a beautiful skyline. The song always felt like a summer evening on a city rooftop, and I wanted to keep that feel throughout it. How does "Skyline" contrast your previous releases? How does the song stand out regarding lyricism, sound, and the overall atmosphere?
Most of the songs on my latest project, "Love Odyssey," are romantic love songs with a pop/R&B vibe. We were definitely aiming for a Michael Jackson "Off The Wall" kind of vibe, with songs that groove and are just classic and timeless. I think this song fits in perfectly with what we were aiming to do, but it also features me playing the talkbox, which is something I'd never done and was a very cool experience. How can listeners get to know you more personally with "Skyline?"How does this song represent you?
For the music video, I wanted to pay tribute to my 1yr old son and our relationship. The video shows my cross-country drive from Philadelphia to L.A. that I made this past January and uses my relationship with my son as a way to show it. Because of this, and all of the big life changes that have happened to us over the last three years, this is the most meaningful video I've ever done, and I hope people enjoy it!
What's next for you?
Just hit the ground running here in Los Angeles! We still have a few more videos from "Love Odyssey" that we'll be releasing through the rest of the year. But otherwise, connecting with some L.A. producers, building my team out here, and working on new music for the next project next year!
