Alex Lahey

Recommended by Ryan J. Prado

Australian imports have been more common over the past few years, with musicians like Courtney Barnett, Alex Cameron, and Hockey Dad repping the Down Under vibe throughout the rest of the world. Though the nature of that vibe is up for debate, if Alex Lahey’s 2017 debut, I Love You Like a Brother, is any indication, there’s clearly a happy, fun-time bonanza brewing. Lahey’s effortless skuzz-pop gems sizzle with hummable melodies and rapid-fire rock that sounds inspired by Joan Jett and Juliana Hatfield. Her singles radiate heat like the sunny beaches of Melbourne, as heard on bubblegum scorchers like “Every Day’s the Weekend” and “I Haven’t Been Taking Care of Myself,” but open up new, more intriguing songwriting layers on moodier tunes like “Perth Traumatic Stress Disorder.” It’s catchy, high-energy stuff, and probably the perfect antidote for a case of the Mondays.
